Winter Solder Northwest: Working to end America's other crisis.

The nation is transfixed by the financial meltdown. It has become the top issue of the presidential campaign. But while stock prices drop, casualties continue to rise in Afghanistan and Iraq. This Saturday, soldiers, their families, veterans, journalists and peace activists are coming together in Portland to offer testimony on the human cost of war. Winter Soldier Northwest, modeled on the Winter Soldier hearings held in 1971 by Vietnam veterans opposed to that war, is one of many regional hearings held around the country to build the political will needed to end the war and bring the troops home.
