Veterans at Occupy Sacramento speak out against war, arrests
by Dan Bacher
"Out of my experience that day, I made my committment to work for peace - and decided that the best way to do that was as a pastor," said Jerry Pedersen, a Lutheran minister and veteran. "As a member of Veterans for Peace, I am working for our veterans to be treated honorably when they come home from war - and for the government to make a real committment to slow down the war and violence business."
