Healing the Wounds of War

Healing the wounds of war is central to the call for peace - whether those wounds be in the countries where bombs were dropped or in the homes and hearts of veterans in our own society.

In Vietnam thousands of civilians are still wounded each year by landmines and unexploded ordinance . Thousands carry the crippling effects of Agent Orange exposure in the second generation.

The beautiful civilization of Iraq is nearly destroyed. Clean water is lacking for most of the population. Millions are displaced either within the country or outside it.

US veterans of three generations struggle with post-traumatic stress, addiction and homelessness, often many years after their military duty.

In each of these cases, Veterans For Peace is responding. Visit these pages to see what can be done.
