Adam Kokesh: (505) 470-1917 firstname.lastname@example.org. IVAW board member who served in Fallujah with a Marine Corps Civil Affairs team. "Relabeling the remaining forces in Iraq 'non-combat troops' will not change the fact that these occupations are being perpetuated to maintain a criminal empire."
James Circello: (419) 905-8305. ANSWER organizer, former Airborne soldier, Iraq veteran, and Afghanistan war resister. "President Bush would often boast that, under his watch, the United States hadn't been attacked since September 11, but the working class has been attacked every day since."
James Gilligan: (267) 506-1495 email@example.com, Served with the USMC in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo. "The backlash of the actions by both administrations, of pursuing the enemy outside of the combat regions will only spread the violence further.

"No matter how Obama spins a surge into Afghanistan, it's still a criminal occupation and we don't want it."
