VFP is wealthy in authors. The following are produced by VFP members or Advisory Board Members.
- Peace In Our Times - Veterans For Peace new hard-copy 20-page quarterly newspaper – Peace In our Times also has a web site, where they carry great articles that were not able to fit in the hard copy editions. Check it out.
- In The Mind Field - news and commentary from veteran writer-activists
- A Global Security System: An Alternative To War It describes the “hardware” of creating a peace system, and the “software” — the values and concepts — necessary to operate a peace system and the means to spread these globally.
- The Peace Report was created to help educate the public about the problems surrounding militarism, wars, conflicts, & the effects of military spending. TPR was created by Will Griffin, an Iraq and Afghanistan veteran turned antiwar activist. Will began to notice the lack of coverage on issues related to militarism and how people aren't connecting the dots of how the wars abroad ultimately bring the wars home. This can easily be seen through examples like the militarization of local police departments and our overall national security spending every year. The Peace Report also has an active YouTube, Facebook and Twitter presence.
