Winter Soldier Film Screening

See the firsthand testimonies of Vietnam War veterans, brought to you by the the Students for Ending the War in Iraq:

“Winter Soldier”
7pm-8:45 pm Wednesday February 20th
PAC 002

Winter Soldier documents the “Winter Soldier Investigation” conducted by Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) in Detroit, Michigan in the winter of 1971. A call went out from VVAW to veterans all over the country saying, in effect, ‘everyone is talking about the war that you know from the inside. If you want to have anything to say about it, come to Detroit and tell it like you saw it.’ At the investigation, over 125 veterans representing every major combat unit to see action in Vietnam, gave eye-witness testimony to war crimes and atrocities they either participated in or witnessed. The purpose of the investigation was to bring to light the nature of American military policy in Vietnam.

These testimonies have inspired a new Winter Soldier Event: From March 13-16th, U.S. veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan will testify to what is really happening day in and day out, on the ground in these occupations. http://ivaw.org/wintersoldier
