Adam Kokesh never thought he’d join an anti-war group, but combat changed that. The Marine sergeant deployed to Iraq with a civil affairs team in 2004 and 2005 hoping to serve his country and make Iraq a better place. “I got there and it was a different story,” the 25-year-old Californian said. “It was clear this wasn’t effective. ... I didn’t question it too much, and I regret that. “I feel I was betrayed.” Kokesh is now a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War. Along with a few other Iraq vets and German peace activists opposed to Army expansion at the Ansbach garrison, Kokesh demonstrated outside Katterbach Army Airfield.
