Service Academy Graduates Against the War
When we took our commissioning oath of office one past graduation day, we swore to protect our nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The deceitful connivances of the current administration have resulted in a war catastrophic to our nation's interests: politically, economically, militarily, and morally. We now stand to protect our nation from these deceivers. We seek justice for all victims of this illegal war, both servicemen and servicewomen, and the citizens of Iraq.
Veterans Against the Iraq War
Veterans who support our troops but oppose war with Iraq or any other nation that does not pose a clear and present danger to our people and nation. We believe that a doctrine of pre-emptive and unilateral U.S. military attack on any nation is illegal, unnecessary, counter-productive, and presents a truly dire and distressing threat to our vital international interests and basic national security.

We will continue to oppose senseless military adventures and to teach the real lessons of the Vietnam War. We will do all we can to prevent another generation from being put through a similar tragedy, and we will continue to demand dignity and respect for veterans of all eras.
Courage to Resist
A group of concerned community members, veterans, and military families that supports military objectors to illegal war and occupation and the policies of empire.
