Anti-War Veterans Re-define Veterans Day in Thanksgiving Message
Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) has accomplished a lot in a short time, but there is plenty of work ahead. Check out this recent article, “Healing from Empire: Anti-War Veterans Re-define Veterans Day” that encapsulates and celebrates our latest efforts.
Notwithstanding the colonial roots of the Thanksgiving holiday, we hope you have a happy one. And as you enjoy your holiday time, please remember our IVAW active duty brothers and sisters, and hold them in your thoughts and hearts.
