Funeral/Memorial Services

 

Fellowship

We meet as brother and sister veterans, people who have served in the military; and associates, those who share our vision. 

We gather, not only to share experiences, but to bare witness to  our fellow citizens of the criminal nature of warfare,  the corruptive influence of the military-industrial complex on our society,  and its cost in money and human suffering. 

We pledge to support each other in our struggle for peace and justice, even in the face of social apathy and public scorn.

Education

We look to Veterans For Peace as a forum to learn from one another. 

We will seek out, pass along, and discuss issues that effect us as vets, as Americans, and citizens of the world.  These issues may range from budget cuts in VA programs,  war related items, and political changes which threaten world peace or human rights. 

Once our consciousness has been raised,  it is our duty to take our message to the community.

Active Commitment

We will meet once a month to reaffirm our commitment to peace and justice. 

We will contribute monetary and moral support to our national Veterans For Peace office, and  from time to time lend a hand with their outreach projects. 

We will speak out on critical issues in the public press, in schools, and in public demonstrations.  We will march in local and state parades on occasions such as Memorial Day and Veteran's Day, showing our colors along side other veterans organizations, letting the public know there are veterans who espouse an alternate point  of view to "peace through strength." 

We will monitor the press and other media, and speak out on said peace and justice issues when needed.  We will keep in touch with other peace groups, and show solidarity when needed. 

Remembrance 

We do not believe erecting more war memorials is the best way to remember our dead and wounded comrades. 

We dedicate ourselves, and our life's work in the struggle for human rights and justice, and against militarism  as a living memorial. 

We will honor them by our efforts to abolish war.  We will keep faith with deceased military, and veterans by conducting burial and memorial services when requested.  These ceremonies will be conducted without the use of weapons, using hands salutes in place of rifle volley.  In keeping with tradition, we will drape the coffin with an American flag, which will be folded and presented to the next of kin.  There will be no political messages given at these ceremonies, they will be kept simple and dignified. 

We may assist fellow veteran's organizations such as the VFW and American Legion in such activities as grave marking  on Memorial Day, and wreath laying for Veteran's Day in the interest of maintaining good relations and solidarity with them.
