I am utterly delighted to see that you have created a new book and movie about the GI movement against the Vietnam war. I was there, one of the founding members of Gi's United Against the War at Ft. Bragg, NC, in 1969, continuing to work with other GI's to put out Bragg Briefs and help organize until I was discharged in 1971.
The best memories I have of that time are the camaraderie we shared, especially working together to write, edit, compose, and print Bragg Briefs. I also remember how we organized the largest antiwar demonstration in Fayetteville, the main town next to the post, that that town has ever seen, in May of 1970. Jane Fonda, Rennie Davis, Mark Lane and many others (including myself) spoke at the rally after the demonstration. We had at least 5,000 marchers, most of them active duty GI's from Ft. Bragg.
It must have made an impact, because a few days later, the Quaker House, a local organization supporting us, was burned to the ground by an arsonist. The Quakers quickly found other quarters in Fayetteville and are still there today, 35 years later.
I am very proud of the actions I took against the war while in the Army. I am convinced that the GI Movement brought the war to an earlier end than otherwise would have happened, primarily because, due to our efforts, the soldiers became unreliable, forcing the makers of the war to abandon it.
Thank you again for making the history of what I and my fellow "anti-warriors" did available to everyone.
