UCLA student fights for Libyan rebels

Chris Jeon, a 22 year old math student at the University of California, Los Angeles, didn't exactly have your typical summer vacation.

Jeon bought a plane ticket from Los Angeles to Cairo, took a train to Alexandria and then took buses to Libya to fight with the rebel forces. Speaking no Arabic, Jeon stayed with fighters and families in the area and joined the revolution.

Today on American Morning, Jeon discusses his experience and explains what inspired him to travel to Libya to join up with the rebels in their fight against Moammar Gadhafi.
