Soldiers in Iraq: Hang On to Your Humanity

An open letter to GIs in Iraq.

Found this link in a syllabus in an English composition course whose thematic focus was "Making Peace, Making War."

The letter was written in November 2003 by a Vietnam veteran who served in the 173rd Airborne Brigade. It is posted on the Bring Them Home Now web site. BTHN describes itself as "a campaign of military families, veterans, active duty personnel, reservists and others opposed to the ongoing war in Iraq and galvanized to action by George W. Bush's inane and reckless challenge to armed Iraqis resisting occupation to 'Bring 'em on.'"
