update on war resister james burmeister

James Burmeister is the Iraq War resister who recently surrendered to the military and is being held in a military prison at Ft. Knox, Kentucky.

After 25 days in a heavy-security holding facility, James will now be transferred to a more "casual" facility, where detainees are given more freedom as they await court martial. James' family believes this is a direct result of public pressure on the military and through James' Congressperson.

The base still has not given the family an address through which James can receive mail. James' many supporters want to contact him... but the military isn't so keen on his receiving that mail. We're told that is coming soon.
