(sot Todd Parrish) "I'm proud of serving my country. I'm proud of what

I did. I'm proud of the person they made me out to be"
nats walking dog

(blueline: Cary, NC)



(narr) After four years in the Army based in Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and

four more in the ready reserves, Lieutenant Todd Parrish had done his duty to his country. Or so he thought. He started making plans with his wife to focus on their careers.. and start a family.

(sot Todd) "I was ready to move on past that and get the uncertainty of

'could I be deployed?' or brought to active duty again behind me"

(narr) Like everyone else who joins the military, Parrish signed a

contract: four years of active duty with the possibility that for the next four years he could be called up again as part of the "ready reserves." His eight year obligation ended last December. Then in May he got a letter from the Army.

(sot Todd) "I thought it was a mistake when I first read the order. But

I knew it was a serious order. It did quote Operation Iraqi Freedom"

(narr) Even though his contractual obligations to the military had ended

seven months before, the Army was ordering Parrish to report to Fort Sill in Oklahoma and prepare for deployment to Iraq. The military still considered him eligible for duty because he hadn't formally resigned from the ready reserves. Parrish and his wife were in shock.


(sot Colette Doyle / Todd's wife) "I don't want him to have to go.. and

we thought he was done -- that was a good feeling. We didn't think this could happen."

(sot Mark Waple) "It's a draft without authority..."



(narr) Parrish's attorney, Mark Waple, says military contracts don't

state that soldiers must formally resign to end their ties to the military. He believes the Army is setting a troubling precedent with this case because the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have put so many demands on their resources.

(sot Mark Waple ) "If it's necessary to take this kind of action with a

man like Todd Parrish, then it's time for Congress to consider the draft and make this legal"

(narr) Parrish did submit his resignation after receiving the letter,

but the Army denied it because he had already been called up for duty. So this week his attorney filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Department of Defense citing breach of contract.

(sot Todd ) "The hardest part about this is.. is the irony of having to

do something.. take action against the United States Army that I served"

(narr) Parrish says he'll report for duty and serve his country again if

the courts side with the Army. So for now he and his wife have put their lives on hold -- taking it one day at a time.

(sot Colette ) "It's been tough for Todd. He doesn't want to be thought

of as somebody that's trying to get out of his commitment to the Army"

(sot Todd ) "It's like a fork in the road and you're waiting to get to

it.. and see which way you have to go down the road"))
