Our local Veterans for Peace, Chapter 99 is one of the more active groups in Asheville working collaboratively to bring about an end to war.

At a recent meeting, WRL Asheville joined with them in welcoming Sharon Kufeldt, VFP national Board member on her way to the VFP National Convention.
Sharon has moved to nearby Georgia, and we look forward to more opportunities to work together.
Kim Carlyle, (seated on right next to Sharon) is the Chapter 99 president, and also edits the War Crimes Times.  Its a great newspaper calling for accountabilty for the crimes of the Bush years and is calling for submissions.
Seated second from the left is James Lattimore, who works with his wife Kasha Baxter and Vet Ron Harayda to produce the weekly radio show, Veterans Voices, on WPVM an Asheville low-power volunteer run radio station.
You can listen to Veterans Voices  over the Internet.  The Veterans for Peace and allies stand every Tuesday, 5 to 6 p.m.  in the center of Asheville’s vibrant downtown.
Over the years standing with Veterans for Peace, we’ve connected with hundreds of folks, engaged in important convesations, and have offered support to Iraq Veterans in forming the local IVAW chapter. Holding the ground together is an important part of our work
