Statement of Purpose

We, as military veterans, do hereby affirm our greater responsibility to serve the cause of world peace. To this end we will work, with others both nationally and internationally.

To increase public awareness of the causes and costs of war.

To restrain our governments from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the internal affairs of other nations.

To end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons.

To seek justice for veterans and victims of war.

To abolish war as an instrument of national policy.

To achieve these goals, members of Veterans For Peace pledge to use non-violent means and to maintain an organization that is both democratic and open with the understanding that all members are trusted to act in the best interests of the group for the larger purpose of world peace.

Dues are due


This is the time of year when we remind members to pay their annual dues. Chapter dues are $25 and can be sent to: VFP Chapter 099, PO Box 356, Mars Hill, NC 28754. Or you can pay our treasurer, Lyle Petersen, in person.

But to be a member of a chapter, you must be a member of the national organization. So make sure that you're in good standing with national. To renew, you can send a $25 check to: Veterans For Peace, 216 South Meramec Ave., St. Louis MO 63105. Or pay online.
.

Please note that after the August convention, national dues are likely to rise to 40 dollars.

Of course national would be willing to accept the additional fifteen dollars now if you'd like (or even more if you can). Likewise, Chapter 099 is always open to your generosity.

Also please note: Don't let lack of funds stop you from being a member. Contact a chapter officer is you need help.
