Thu Mar 13 2008 (Updated 03/18/08) Vets from Iraq and Afghanistan Wars Report Experiences at Winter Soldier Gathering
Winter Soldier: Iraq & Afghanistan In 1971, Vietnam veterans held a conference that they called the Winter Soldier Investigation, to speak out about what was really going on in the Vietnam War. 37 years later, Iraq War vets organized their own Winter Soldier: Iraq & Afghanistan, at which US veterans testified about their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan. They presented video and photographic evidence as part of their testimony. The conference took place from March 13th through 16th in Washington, D.C.. Panels of scholars, veterans, journalists, and others presented about a variety of topics, from the history of GI resistance to the fight for veterans' health benefits and support.

Photos from when Vietnam vets from Portland stopped in Fresno on the way to Winter Soldier. They had previously visited Sacramento. Their next stop was Albuquerque, New Mexico, 750 miles from Fresno, where they planned to give a presentation at a dinner on March 7th before continuing eastward. KPFA radio suspended regular programming to broadcast Winter Soldier during the weekend.
