PEACE, OUT: Mike Hastie, Vietnam War Army medic (1970-71), was among 25 arrested for being at Vietnam Veterans Memorial Plaza after its official closing time Oct. 7. Veterans were at the memorial to commemorate those killed in Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq and other U.S. wars of aggression as the war in Afghanistan enters its 12th year. They were arrested while reading the names of the war dead and placing flowers at the memorial. See stopthesewars.org for more information.
