Veterans For Peace, Clarence Kailin Chapter 25, Madison, is holding each rally in remembrance of the 12th Year Anniversary of the War in Iraq, and the cost of war by our U.S. Soldiers and the U.S. Economy due to the war. And, the cost of war by Iraq from the U.S. "shock and awe" by our military. Did we "win?" Was the mission really accomplished? Will U.S. Soldiers be returning to Iraq soon? The war has had various negative impacts. Has the overall militarization of U.S. civilian police departments been a concern nationally, and locally recently?
