Courage to Resist and the Vietnam Full Disclosure effort of Veterans for Peace are collecting first person accounts of "military resistance." We'll publish many of these stories at couragetoresist.org and vietnamfulldisclosure.org
Specifically, we are looking for:
Each answer field is intentionally limited to approximately one very long paragraph, but shorter answers are fine! If something doesn't apply to you, just say so.
The questionnaire is comprised primarily of a half dozen questions: 1) Your thoughts upon entering or refusing the military, 2) Defining moments that led up to taking action, 3) What did resistance look like for you, 4) Repercussions, 5) How did that experience change you, 6) Any related work your doing today.
You may find it easier to write your answers in a word processor and then copy your answers into the questionnaire. This also protects from loosing your work in case of poor Internet connectivity.
Our objective is to walk you through the sequence of events eliciting a concise story of your personal journey.
If you fit the bill, we hope you'll share your story!
Maybe you were eager to volunteer. Maybe you were drafted. Maybe something in between.
