VVAW Actions in 1971 - 50 Years

1971 was a year of intense struggle, and growth, for VVAW.

2021 is the 50th anniversary of many of VVAW's iconic actions - national, regional, and local: the Playboy ad, the Winter Soldier Investigations, Dewey Canyon III, Operation POW, Operation Peace on Earth, and more.

Check out the pages below to access materials documenting these events.

We would like to invite you to add your stories, for publication on our website and possibly in The Veteran as well.
