Winter Soldier

Winter Soldier II: Iraq and Afghanistan took place a couple weeks back outsie Washintong D.C. At the event veterans and active duty personnel of the armed forces as well as family members and Iraqi nationals told of the horrors of war. They were not accusing people of war crimes or blaming the situation on the soldiers on the ground. They primarily blamed the situation on the generals and politicians who are benefiting from the deaths of men and women who agreed to serve there country. We were abused, we were misused, and it continues unabated as an apathetic America chooses to focus on the likes of Heath Ledger over the deaths of over a million iraqis and over 4000 American soldiers. Break the silence. Check out to view clips from Winter Soldier II and start some conversations.
