Description

In March 2005 thousands of people assembled outside Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, the largest Army instillation in the world, to protest two years of U.S. occupation in Iraq.
War supporters denounced them as, "dirty, hippy, commie, pinkos," but the truth paints a far different picture. The group was primarily veterans and family members of soldiers who had fought and died in the war-torn regions of the Middle East. They belonged to organizations like Veterans for Peace, Viet Nam Veterans Against the War, Gold Star Families for Peace, and Military Families Speak Out.
