Vets for Peace at the VA with Land of the Sky UCC

On Sept 11, 2013, members of VFP099 gathered at the Veterans Administration hospital with members of the Land of the Sky UCC church to assemble three car loads of household equipment and supplies for the HUD-VASH veterans housing project run by the VA. VFP gathered kitchen utensils and cleaning equipment and supplies.  Enough stuff was brought to furnish 15 apartments for formerly homeless veterans.  Ken Ashe, Lyle Petersen, Charlie St. Clair and Gerry Werhan are shown celebrating.

New Years Day vigil

 Bob is tooting his horn to wish everyone peace and Happy New Year!

Rather a cold and rainy day here in Asheville, but some members of Veterans for Peace still came to the vigil - the first one of the year. Still keeping a presence in downtown after all these years. Still pushing for peace, too.
