20 Years of The Veteran

By Barry Romo

[Printer-Friendly Version]

All praise to Jeff Machota on 20 years of putting out The Veteran.

Jeff is not a vet but loves VVAW people so much. He got his start in the struggle for peace and justice by working to end Apartheid in South Africa and didn't stop. He worked on the Jesse Jackson presidential campaign. He is an anti war activist from the Gulf to Iraq, an advocate for good affordable health care and a supporter of the rubber workers striking in Decatur IL. If it is racist he is against it, including demanding the removal of racist sports mascots nationally and locally.

I used to put out The Veteran and readers would race to find all the misspelled words. Now the paper looks very professional. What a man, thank you Jeff for helping to keep VVAW alive and kicking!!!
