Michael Prysner (born June 15, 1983) is an American political activist. He is a U.S. Army veteran who served in Iraq as a corporal. According to Prysner, his duties in Iraq included ground surveillance, home raids and the interrogation of prisoners, and these experiences led him to take an anti-war stand.
He is the co-founder of March Forward!, an organization of active-duty members of the U.S. military and veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars that encourages current active-duty service personnel to resist deployment.
In March 2008, Prysner was a member of a panel discussing the topic Winter Soldier: Iraq & Afghanistan in Maryland. He spoke about his time in Iraq as a soldier and his personal views about the two wars. This address became known as the "Our Real Enemies" speech.
Prysner is a member of Party for Socialism and Liberation and A.N.S.W.E.R.. In 2008, he ran a write-in campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives for Florida's 22nd congressional district (Boca Raton).
