The Full Disclosure campaign is a Veterans For Peace effort to speak truth to power and keep alive the antiwar perspective on the American war in Viet Nam — with a series of 50th anniversary events now occurring.

Produced by Courage to Resist in collaboration with the Vietnam Full Disclosure effort of Veterans For Peace.
