STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

We, veterans of the armed forces, having dutifully served our nation, do hereby affirm our greater responsibility to serve the cause of world peace.

To this end:

a. We will work toward increasing public awareness of the costs of war

b. We will work to restrain our government from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the internal affairs of other nations

c. We will work to end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons

To achieve these goals, members of Veterans for Peace pledge to use non-violent means and to maintain an organisation that is both democratic and open with the understanding that all members are trusted to act in the best interests of the group for the larger purpose of world peace.

We urge all veterans who share this vision to join us.
