We, having dutifully served our nation, do hereby aﬃrm our greater responsibility to serve the cause of world peace.
To this end we will work, with others:
• To increase public awareness of the costs of war.
• To restrain our government from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the
internal aﬀairs of other nations.
• To end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons
• To seek justice for veterans and victims of war.
• To abolish war as an instrument of national policy.
To achieve these goals, members of Veterans For Peace pledge to use non-
violent means and to maintain an organization that is both democratic and open
with the understanding that all members are trusted to act in the best interests
of the group for the larger purpose of world peace.
Veterans for Peace is the only veterans organization devoted to promoting peace. Our chapter 35, based in Spokane, WA includes vets from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, etc., including our senior veteran from the first wave of Marines on Iwo Jima. We work toward the following objectives:
Truth in Recruitment: Explaining the real nature of military service to high school students considering enlistment.
-Exposing the true cost of war and militarism.
-Exposing the toxic polluting generated by the military in general and Fairchild AFB in particular.
-Addressing PTSD and veteran suicide.
-Aiding veterans to navigate the bureaucracy required to collect benefits due.
-Addressing the cost of military aid to foreign, generally repressive governments.
-Co-sponsoring speakers and events that contribute to peace and justice.
Spokane Veterans for Peace was chartered in 1989 as the 35th chapter of the organization begun in Maine in 1985. The late Sean Daly, founder of the Colville chapter and the first VFP leader west of New England, was active in the Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane and was determined to have a Spokane chapter.
