Active-Duty Soldiers Petition for Return of US Troops

Hosted by

In 1969, almost 1400 active-duty service members signed a full-page ad in the New York Times calling for an end to the Vietnam War. Their strategy was resistance and confrontation. The latest Nation magazine reports on "the most significant movement of organized and dissident GI's in America" since those days. This time the strategy is all according to military regulations. Next month, active-duty military personnel will formally present Congress an Appeal for Redress, urging it to bring the troops home from Iraq.
