This e-mail from the head of thsoe Gulf War Veterans trying to prevent another war in Iraq. If you are in Virginia, or near it, you may want to support them:
I'm writing all of you who signed the Veterans for Common Sense
statement to invite you to an upcoming dinner on Monday, November 4 at 6:40 PM in Fairfax, Virginia. If you are in the area please make the time to come out and talk. We're going to be discussing strategies and what the future of our group should be. We've gotten a tremendous response in just the few weeks since our web site went up. We hope to see you there!
If you haven't done so already, please also let your friends know about our statement and have them sign on. We're looking to deliver it by Veterans Day (that will be part of the discussion on Monday).
