I am a veteran opposed to war except when our country is subject to an unprovoked attack as stated in the constitution.
War causes needless death and destruction of property.
I am pleased to be a member of Veterans for Peace where I can give support to like minded, courageous veterans and volunteers.

The work of VFP is essential in keeping the consciousness of peace forefront in our thinking. VFP can help us evolve from using war to resolve conflict, to peaceful, beneficial, cooperative methods.

Have been involved for over 25 years, interacting with other Veterans in educating the public regarding the true costs of our unnecessary wars, to abolish war as a means of resolving conflicts.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure that the media is better informed of, and uses, the resources of Veterans For Peace.
