REMINDER: VFP 2006 National Convention -- Request for Workshop Proposals
We invite you to be a part of what promises to be the most important convention in the history of Veterans For Peace.

The deadline of March 30 is fast approaching for submitting workshop proposals for the 2006 VFP National Convention. We know you have issues and subjects to discuss and present.

2006 VFP Annual Convention
August 10-13, Seattle, WA

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense." -- Dwight Eisenhower
