The Short Life of Jose Antonio Gutierrez

José Antonio Gutierrez -- a "green card" (non-U.S. citizen) soldier and the Iraq War's first American casualty. A former street kid from Guatemala, Gutierrez traveled to America in search of a better life, only to end up on the other side of the world when he enlisted in the Marines to gain U.S. citizenship after serving.
