Aaron Hughes is a former Illinois Army National Guard (ILNG) Sergeant who after serving six years was discharged in June of 2006. He joined the ILNG in order to serve his community and get an education. In 2003 he was involuntarily deployed to Kuwait and Iraq with the belief he would provide humanitarian relief for the Iraqi people. As a truck driver he traveled throughout much of Iraq and quickly came to the realization that he was not providing any type of humanitarian relief, but in stead was contributing to the oppression, destruction, and dehumanization of the Iraqi people. Following a fifteen-month deployment Aaron returned home committed to ending the occupation and US corporate pillaging. He has dedicated his life to creatively fighting dehumanization and oppression.
