Tim Keenan of Veterans For Peace Chapter in Traverse City, Michigan, recently attended a talk given by Jane Fonda and Michael Moore.
Tim Keenan had the chance to address Jane, saying “If I could, what I would do right now is I would come up to you and I would drape the Congressional Medal of Honor around you,” said Tim Keenan, a Vietnam War veteran. “I’m so proud of you for all the work you’ve done and all that you have endured, the adversity and your courage.”
VFP joins a coalition of concerned peace organizations and citizens of the United States who are advocating for the importance of abolishing nuclear weapons globally, toward a more peaceful world. The coalition recently issued an open letter to express our sincere regrets and apologies for the deaths of those killed by our nation’s atomic bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, a war crime and crime against humanity, although our government has never apologized.
