Reclaim Armistice Day

By Ben Chitty

[Printer-Friendly Version]

Several VVAW members joined more than a dozen veterans, military family members, and supporters in a vigil at the United Nations on September 21, the International Day of Peace. The vigil was called by the Veterans Peace Council of Metro New York to respond to the annual call by the World Veterans Federation for Veterans Peace Walks, and to launch a campaign to reclaim November 11 Armistice Day as a commemoration of peace in New York City.


Ben Chitty is a shellback Navy veteran of two deployments to Vietnam, and a long-time member of VVAW.
