IVAW DEPLOYED -- Action Campaign


Recently, IVAW Deployed members Darrell Anderson, Ethan Crowell, Michael Cuzzort, and Tim Goodrich went to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton to hand out care packages to active-duty personnel entering the base.

As the member remained off base, the group was allowed to continue their action. Morning traffic was backed up past the entry gates.

The group handed out about fifty bags containing candy, flyers for Sir No Sir and The Ground Truth, IVAW bumper stickers and flyers, a copy of an Appeal for Redress and a card for the GI Rights Hotline .

"We had a very good reception," said Michael Cuzzort.

Two police officers were less than twenty feet away the whole hour and a half and did not disturb the members.

IVAW Deployed also visited Congressman Waxman to ask him to vote NO on further funding the Iraq war. The members also "deployed" to a military recruiter's office in Los Angeles and spoke to potential enlistees who entered or exited the building.

The members attended a candlelight vigil at the Orange Traffic Circle in the city of Orange, California.
