One of my local veterans for peace sent this great Winter Soldier slideshow.
What is the history of Winter Soldier?
In 1776, Thomas Paine wrote: “These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.” In 1971, a courageous group of veterans exposed the criminal nature of the Vietnam War in an event called Winter Soldier. Once again, we will demand that the voices of veterans are heard.
You can also watch Winter Soldier testimony or read the media coverage.
