About IVAW:
Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) was founded by Iraq war veterans in 2004 to give a voice to the large number of active duty service people and veterans who are against this war, but are under various pressures to remain silent. From its inception, IVAW has called for:immediate withdrawal of all occupying forces in Iraq; reparations for the destruction and corporate pillaging of Iraq so that ordinary Iraqi people can control their own lives and future; and full benefits, adequate healthcare (including mental health), and other supports for returning servicemen and women. For more information: www.ivaw.org

About the Appeal for Redress:
Many active duty, reserve, and guard service members are concerned about the war in Iraq and support the withdrawal of U.S. troops. The Appeal for Redress provides a way in which individual service members can appeal to their Congressional Representative and US Senators to urge an end to the U.S. military occupation. The first Appeal signatures were delivered to members of Congress on January 16, to coincide with at the time of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in January 2007. Appeal for Redress will continue to collect signatures until all active duty, Guard, and active reserve soldiers are out of Iraq. Nearly 2,000 troops have signed the Appeal for Redress to date.

About the Military Project:
The Military Project was formed in 2004 to equip concerned civilians (alongside and including military family members and veterans) to reach out to anti-war troops who seek support. Members of the Military Project engage in outreach to connect with those who can strengthen the anti-war movement based on their experience and first-hand knowledge: troops themselves. The Military Project publishes GI Special, a near-daily bulletin for service members. For more information: www.militaryproject.org
