Friends of Courage to Resist
"We all need to support those...who speak up and stand out and say no to the meatgrinder! Courage to Resist is already doing that..."
I was one of those GIs. I finished my tour in Vietnam disillusioned, angry, and confused. The friendship of anti-war civilians and veterans while I was still in the Marines helped me develop and overview of the war, and the support they provided helped a group of us GIs launch the first underground newspaper and progressive bookstore at Camp LeJeune, North Carolina.
Courage to Resist is the pre-eminent organization today providing support to active duty resisters who have come to understand the magnitude of our crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan, and have loudly said, "NO MORE!"
We all need to support those men and women who refuse to be labeled as 'troops'--those who speak up and stand out and say no to the meatgrinder!
Courage to Resist is already doing that. You should, too.
