MILITARY
From page 1
said he will have to give up his hobby
while he serves.
LEARNING TO BE
A SOLDIER
Charalambides said the first three
weeks of training were the hardest.
It was the longest time he had ever
spent away from home.
He had to wake up at 5 a.m.
after sleeping in a small one-room
barracks with more than 70 other
men - many of whom he disliked.
He had to get used to following
orders, even those he thought were
irrational. Higher ranking officers
often screamed at him for minor
offenses.
"They break you," he said. "You
go from being a high school kid to
being your own man."
Some aspects of military service
are universal. University of Michi-
gan students from Korea, Iran,
Cyprus and Israel all complained
about the food and the early wake-
up calls. They all remembered the
first time they shot a gun.
Charalambides learned to shoot
using a Zestava rifle, an assault rifle
that closely resembles an AK-47.
"I had never fired a gun and you
know the whole bang of it was like a
really new experience," he said.
He said he quickly got used to it.

Rackham student Panagiotis
Christodoulou also served in
Cyprus. He said he sometimes
enjoyed "night shot," when the
soldiers would practice shooting
through special night-vision view-
ers. For the most part, though, he
wasn't enthusiastic about shoot-
ing.
"I always sucked with the gun,"
he said. "I don't like guns anyway."
CLASSIFIED
INFORMATION
In Cyprus and Korea, only men
must serve in the military. Israel
requires men to serve for three years
and women for.two. Serving as an
Israeli officer adds another year.
In Israel, only religious women,
married women or those with medi-
cal problems can get exemptions
from the required service.
Rackham student Limor Ben-
Har joined the Israeli army in Octo-
ber of 2000. Most Israelis serve
between high school and college,
but Ben-Har went to college first
and earned degrees in political sci-
ence and French at the University
of Tel Aviv.
Ben-Har called her M-16 "the
broom" because it was so long.
At first, Ben-Har was disappoint-
ed when she learned that she had
been assigned to the intelligence
analysis unit - her third choice.
When she joined her unit and

learned about the issues she would
be studying, though, she changed
her mind.
She said she is forbidden from
disclosing anything about the top-
ics she examined during her time in
the army. She said she wrote reports
and attended briefings and meet-
ings in what she described as a "race
after information."
At just 20 years old, she had
access to classified information.
"That's just the way it is," she
said.
Ben-Mar's commanders tried to
convince her to stay in the military
after her time was up. Instead, she
went to work as a senior coordina-
tor for defense policy in the Israeli
National Security Council. She
prepared papers and presentations
used by then-Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon and helped design the plan
to withdraw Israeli troops from
the Gaza Strip and part of the West
Bankin2005.
Ben-Har said mandatory ser-
vice benefits the country. She said
it makes people engaged in politics,
ensuresthat "good people" enter the
military system and breaks down
social boundaries. It also helps
young people build develop skills
and maturity, she said. It does have
disadvantages, though.
"You do waste the best years of
your life, basically, instead of study-
ing and working," she said.

PAYING HIS WAY OUT
In Cyprus, a small number of
men escape service by falsely claim-
ing mental health problems. But
they later have to face questions
about their mental health as well
the stigma attached to not serving,
Charalambides said.
LSA sophomore Reza Dada-
shzadeh has dual American and
Iranian citizenship. His Iranian cit-
izenship obliges him to do two years
of national service in the military or
the Iranian government.
Dadashzadeh was born in Michi-
ganand spent most ofhis childhood in
Kansas. Besides visits, Dadashzadeh
lived for only one year in Iran with his
family duringthe third grade.
To escape the requirement,
Dadashzadeh paid the Iranian gov-
ernment about $4,800. Only males
living outside of Iran can take
advantage of this exemption.
After he receives the exemption,
Dadashzadeh will be able to freely
enter and leave Iran. Without the
exemption, he would be entitled to
only one exit visa from Iran each
year.
Dadashzadeh said he never
thought the Iranian military ser-
vice requirement would be an issue
for him. On his last trip, though, he
almost left Iran to go to Dubai before
realizing he would not be allowed
back in because of the visa restric-
tions.

GUANTANAMO
From page 1
year, and Mokit was releasedbefore
McCormack could travel to Cuba.
Now that she has the security
clearance, however, McCormack
would be able to meet with Guanta-
namo detainees in any future cases
she may take on. McCormack said
she is consideringtaking more cases
from inmates at the Cuban facility.
McCormack teaches law clinics
at the law school. There, she selects
clients and enlists students to assist
in researching and building a case.
In many cases, students are active
in the litigation process.
McCormack said her selection of
cases is guided by two principles:
an obligation to her students to give
them important experience and an
obligation to social justice.
That means only selecting clients
who cannot afford a lawyer or who
are otherwise not entitled to one.
While Guantatamo detainees are a
clear example of such persons, most
ofMcCormack's students areinvolved
inlocal and state-levelcases.
McCormack is modest about her
work.
"I have to give more credit to the
private practice lawyers who do
pro bono work," she said.
While all lawyers represent-
ing Guantanamo detainees volun-
teer their services, McCormack's

Tuesday, March 13, 2007 - 7
resources at the Law School make
it easier for her to work for free.
McCormack said she feels a spe-
cial obligation to represent prison-
ers at Guantanamo. In a June 2005
editorial in The Detroit News, she
wrote, "Our commitment to such
basic rights extends to our most
serious transgressors, and it is
upheld during our most difficult
times. Such a commitment most dis-
tinguishes us from our enemies."
McCormack said she hopes that
more attorneys take -up the chal-
lenge of representing Guantanamo
detainees.
"We're all going to feel a lot bet-
ter about this period if we stand
up," she said.
Standing up in that way may
soon be impossible, though.
The Military Commissions Act of
2006 officially eliminates the right to
habeas corpus for anyone the govern-
ment labels an "enemy combatant."
Litigation has continued while
the law's constitutionality is debat-
ed in the courts and a Supreme
Court decision upholding the law
would effectively halt litigation on
behalf of detainees at Guantanamo.
Last week, the Washington D.C.
Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the
act's constitutionality and McCor-
mack expects the Supreme Courtto
accept the case next year. She was
optimistic about getting the law
struck down.
