"Winter Soldiers" is an inside look at a peace protest held in front of the White House on December 16, 2010. Led by Veterans For Peace, 135 people stood in swirling snow and blistering cold to bring an end to the occupation of Afghanistan. They included Pulitzer prizewinning author Chris Hedges and Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg.

  1. Thanks, Matt. These are real heroes. They answered the call when Johnson demanded they serve in the corporate war in Vietnam. These lifers in Veterans For Peace have never stopped fighting. I am proud to be a member.
