Iraq and Afghanistan War Vets Welcome! After a distinguished military career, retired Colonel Ann Wright continued to serve her country for another 16 years as a foreign diplomat in Somalia, Nicaragua, Uzbekistan, Sierra Leone and Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban in December 2001. But on March 13, 2003, six days before the Iraq invasion, she resigned her post in protest of Bush administration policies and thereby gave herself freedom to speak out. Since then her patriotism is expressed as an anti-war activitst who travels and lectures on foreign policy issues. She worked with Cindy Sheehan to open Camp Casey in Crawford Texas. She has been arrested five times in the last year and cheerfully calls herself a "felon for peace". She has been temporarily banned from two military bases, the US Capitol area and the National Press Club for voicing her uncompromising opinions and exposing the unvarnished truth about US policies and their consequences. Lecture to be followed by Question and Answer session. Light pupus served.
