Armed with Pens

War veterans,

War veterans, families with relatives in the military, peace activists, and others met in Washington, D.C., in March to publicly sign a statement of support for U.S. soldiers in Iraq who are refusing orders to fight for reasons of conscience. Signers could be charged with violating U.S. Code 18-2387, which prohibits anyone from encouraging "refusal of duty by any member of the military."
