and end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"Memorials and parades are one thing, but war veterans know the best thing
you can do to support and protect troops is to bring them home safety,
especially from a war virtually everyone now admits was a mistake from the
beginning.

"We want the new President and Congress to call for an immediate
cease-fire, and a plan to bring our comrades home now," said Veterans for
Peace/Sacramento.
