January 3, 2017 | Join the Veterans Contingent in the Women's March on Washington!
On January 21st, Veterans For Peace will join the Women’s March on Washington to send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world, that women's rights are human rights. We will march in a contingent of progressive veteran and military family groups, including: IVAW, MFSO, Common Defense, Beyond the Choir and Black Knights Men's Choir.
Will YOU be in Washington D.C.? Let us know!
Order The Newest Copy of Peace In Our Times
The newest issue of Peace In Our Times is now available for order! This paper is a powerful way to manifest and spread the mission we all believe in – of ending war as an instrument of national policy. And this Winter issue is packed with nonviolent peace-making dynamite, including a large spread of VFP at Standing Rock.
We are hoping every chapter will order at least one bundle for distribution. We have over 100 chapters, and besides spreading our mission, this is a way that you can get word out and build your chapter. There is a box at the lower left hand corner – that is where each chapter or individual can put their contact information. It is a great opportunity!

Last Chance to Sign Up For Trip to Viet Nam
Each year since 2012 members of Việt Nam's Hoa Binh (Peace) Chapter 160 of Veterans For Peace (VFP) invite up to 20 veterans & non-vet spouses & peace activists to come to Việt Nam every Spring for an insider's 2-week tour. The Hoa Binh chapter is the first & only overseas VFP chapter of American veterans living in Việt Nam!
The mission of the tour is to address the legacies of America’s war, as well as visit a beautiful country & form lasting ties of friendship & peace; therefore each tour participant is asked to bring a minimum of $1,000 as a donation. The money will go to VFP Chapter 160’s humanitarian projects in Việt Nam: bomb clearance, chemical warfare victims, hospitals, orphanages, schools, etc. The group will visit recovery & assistance projects supported by VFP & meet with Việt Namese families & war veterans struggling with: Agent Orange/Dioxin, Unexploded Ordinance & Poverty.
