About Face
Written by John Henry

Welcome to About Face

“About Face” is a program brought to you by the Phoenix Chapter of Veterans For Peace. Veterans For Peace is a national organization that draws on the personal experiences of veterans to raise awareness of the true costs and consequences of militarism and war and to seek peaceful, effective alternatives. There are over 135 active chapters across this country and is spreading. They have helped Cindy Sheehan in her work to bring awareness of the human cost of war. They were one of the first groups to arrive in New Orleans and begin working to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina and they established and set up “Arlington West” sites in beach areas across California and other locations in the United States to bring awareness of the cost of war.

The program “About Face” addresses the issues and concerns of our veterans returning home from the war and military. For example, we discuss issues such as the number of homeless veterans and programs that provide assistance, counseling, and training to help these heroes get another chance in life. We discuss the effects of PTSD and how sufferers of this disorder can get help. We also discuss topics like the role of women in the military, War Crimes, Counter Recruiting and effects of Depleted Uranium and Agent Orange on our military forces and families. Our basic mission is to work toward increasing public awareness of the cost of war, to seek justice for veterans and victims of war, and work toward abolishing war as an instrument of national policy.

About Face is brought to you by Casey Moore's Oyster House at 850 Ash St, Phoenix and Veterans For Peace Phoenix, 15825 S 28th Place, Phoenix.
