Overview and metadata sections
The founders were former servicemen and servicewomen who served in Vietnam and who opposed the United States government's policy during the Vietnamese Conflict, sometimes in the face of public apathy, indifference and even hostility and harassment. They testified in the 1971 Winter Soldier Investigation as to the extent of atrocities against Viet Cong prisoners, civilians, and illegal border incursions into noncombatant countries.
