[haw-info] Calling All Vets of Vietnam, Afghanistan & Iraq: Your Stories are Wanted

Greetings. The United States government has initiated a program to "celebrate" the war in Vietnam. This program is expected to last several years (although not as long as the war itself lasted).
A number of us who were in Vietnam at the time, or who protested the war in a serious way at home, or who now oppose similar wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, have formed a network to respond to the government's program. Needless to say, Kill Anything That Moves by Nick Turse will be a major resource in this work.
Nobody knows the truth as well as those who were combatants in the jungles of Vietnam or the deserts of Afghanistan and Iraq. We propose to collect stories that vets have not been able to tell and put them on the network's website: http://www.vietnamfulldisclosure.org/
If you are interested, e-mail Carl Mirra at mirrac@optonline.net, or Staughton Lynd at salynd@aol.com, or Jeri Fogel at fogelj@mail.montclair.edu . One of us was in the Marines and after a long struggle was classified as a Conscientious Objector and discharged. Another received an Undesirable Discharge from the United States Army, later changed to Honorable.
If you'd like to chat about things like whether you need to give your name along with your story (you don't), tell us in your e-mail what your phone number is and when you would like us to call.

Carl Mirra, Staughton Lynd, Jeri Fogel, and the Steering Committee of Historians Against War
