Attached is a flyer that Veterans For Peace is beginning to distribute to U.S. soldiers who are being deployed to the Mexican border to confront the caravan of Central American asylum seekers. It offers perspective, support and resources to soldiers who may be questioning this misguided military mission and their role within it.
You are not alone if you are thinking WTF am I doing on the U.S. border with Mexico?
You are not alone if you are asking if this is some kind of political stunt.
You are not alone if you wonder what all this concertina wire is for.
Is it even legal to deploy troops on U.S. soil? Against desperate asylum seekers?
You are not alone if you are re-thinking your role in the U.S. military.
No, you are not alone. Many people, in and out of the military, have these very same concerns. Veterans For Peace certainly does. We believe the deployment of U.S. troops to the border is an illegitimate use of the U.S. military. We believe the Central America caravan poses no threat whatsoever to anyone.
