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.

"Walk a mile in her shoes"

This is an annual event in Asheville, and it is to raise funds for Our Voice, a local non-profit serving victims of sexual assault.  Some of the members of Veterans for Peace Chapter 099 took part in the walk this year.  Jim Brown took the pictures below of the event, except where he handed his camera to someone else to snap the photo (or maybe he had a timer?).
