Memorial Service for 4000 Fallen

To morn the anniversary of the occupation of Iraq and the 4,000 US soldier killed in that needless war, we came to the Vietnam War Memorial at the Capitol in Raleigh.  This was our first action even before we were a chapter.  It did get some press coverage with a picture in the News & Observer and the article Soldiers, Activists Speak on the War's Anniversary  in the Independent. Wally Myers gave the speech, Five Years of Deception which was also featured. Code Pink organized the naming of all the North Carolina service people who had died.  After this Mia Austin-Scoggins read her poem Till We Bring Them Home Again.
