Among the First to Die

The life and death of one of the first American casualties of the War against Terror - Lance Corporal Jose Gutierrez, a 28 year old Guatemalan, who joined the Marines because "he wanted to give back a little bit to his adopted country" - and received his citizenship posthumously from President Bush. The contradictions and tragedies of being the "other" while fighting the "other". Although this is a rough cut, the material is so strong, it has been included in the Call for Change series.

Purchase the Call for Change Series for $125.
