VOICES TV Exclusive: Lars Prip's Vietnam War Flag -- Veterans for Peace

Only those that have lived through the terror and destruction that is war can truly understand how senseless violence and killing undermines the integrity of nations that perpetrate these crimes against world. Lars Prip and David Soumis are Vietnam War activists that are members of the National Chapter of Veterans for Peace.  Each Saturday, they set up a display on the northeast corner of Madison's popular outdoors farmers market for outreach and to educate the public about the reality of war and the ways it undermines our democracy, economy, and standing in the global community.

After the jump, let's let Jahn explain his work and the unique and historic flag he uses to carry the message.  Peace.



Jahn Prip's Vietnam War Flag -- Veterans for Peace


VOICES TV and blog have been listening to our brave veterans when they share their experience, strength, and hope for peace.  Despite what the media misrepresents as high-tech precise military strikes, entire communities and even cities are destroyed killing non-combatants -- innocent men, women and children.  The trauma this inflicts on both sides of the conflict -- are deep, profound, and last for generations.

Here are some other related posts which we present in the hope that people will talk among their friends, families, and social circles about the devastation of war, the severe economic burden this places on our children, and the need for positive change -- Peace.
