War veterans advocate for peace
Madison Veterans for Peace in Viet Nam Ephemera
The Madison Veterans for Peace in Viet Nam was organized in 1967 by veterans who advocated for peace. The organization sought to challenge the notion that dissent indicated a lack of patriotism, particularly among former servicemen, through a series of educational programs. While membership had at first been predominated by veterans of World War I, World War II, and Korea, the organization soon welcomed members who had returned from Viet Nam. Included here is a history of the organization, its constitution, an annual report from 1970, an FAQ about the group, and a set of questions and answers on the war from candidates for political office in 1970.
