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.

Clean up day!
Once a month, Veterans for Peace Chapter 099 does a street cleanup on Roberts Street. This is the street of the Phil Mechanic Building, where the Veterans for Peace office is located. Above is Jim Brown with some bags of trash. And below is Lyle Peterson, Kim Carlyle, and Jim Brown. The Phil Mechanic Building is in the background. I was confused on the start time, so I got there just in time to snap these photos. Good work guys! The street and the parking lot look a lot better since we started doing this on a monthly basis.
