It all started in 1967, with six Vietnam veterans marching together in a peace demonstration. Now, fifty-three years later, VVAW is still going strong-- continuing its fight for peace, justice, and the rights of all veterans.

Excerpt From THE VETERAN: Now Online
Taken from Notes from England by John Lindquist:
Hello to VVAW!
John Lindquist reporting in from Minster Lovell, Oxfordshire, England. More on why I am here in England later in the article.
First, I need VVAW to help one of its old members, Ann L. Bailey. Annie has been house bound for the last two years. A neurological condition has rendered her unable to stand or walk. She does get lonely and could use mail from you.
Annie was an early member in 1971. At the time, she was one of the few women non-veteran members and very active in VVAW. She was at Dewey Canyon III and IV and lots of national meetings. She was active in our anti-war struggle, the Gainesville 8 trial, War on the VA, and especially the Agent Orange battle.
Who could forget the VVAW national campouts! She did more than a lot for this outfit and could use some mail. If you want her address, email email@example.com. Sorry, Annie does not do email.
Minster Lovell, Oxfordshire is a lovely village in rural England.... Read More
