Veterans for Peace Special Event

8 years ago Steven Sherrill build 340 crosses and he and volunteers pounded them into the sand at Stearns Wharf to remind Americans that our troops were dying in Iraq.


Since then over 1700 names of the fallen have been visited by family, friends and combat buddies, some over dozens of times.

Now that the Iraq War is coming to a close, we cannot abandon the troops, vets and their families that suffer from the physical and psychological wounds of combat. They need treatment and jobs in a cost-cutting economy brought on mostly by these wars.

On November 6th the public is invited to help setup Arlington West and read the names of the fallen in Iraq and Afghanistan starting at 9:00 AM.

Lois Capps, Helene Schneider and Marty Bloom have been invited. Marty is reading at 11:00 AM , Lois is speaking and reading at (12:30) PM , Helene is reading at 12:45 PM.
