Stopping 'Stop-Loss'
Seattle Weekly: News: Stopping 'Stop-Loss' by Nina Shapiro: "On June 11, 2004, two weeks before [Emiliano] Santiago's National Guard contract was due to expire, his platoon sergeant informed him that he was subject to the Pentagon's controversial 'stop-loss' policy and would not be allowed to leave the Guard. Last October, months after his contract was supposed to have ended, the Guard ordered Santiago to report to Fort Sill, Okla., for training in preparation for deployment to Afghanistan. Santiago balked. Although he reported to Fort Sill as ordered and is there still, he's fighting the government in court.

On April 6, the federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear his case. It will be the highest level of court review for the so-called 'stop-loss' policy"
