Veterans For Peace Statement of Purpose
We, having dutifully served our nation, do hereby affirm our greater responsibility to serve the cause of world peace. To this end we will work, with others:
- To increasing public awareness of the costs of war.
- To restrain our government from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the internal affairs of other nations
- To end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons
- To seek justice for veterans and victims of war
- To abolish war as an instrument of national policy.
To achieve these goals, members of Veterans For Peace pledge to use non-violent means and to maintain an organization that is both democratic and open with the understanding that all members are trusted to act in the best interests of the group for the larger purpose of world peace.
HOW TO JOIN VETERANS FOR PEACE
You do not need to be a veteran in order to join Veterans For Peace, nor do you need to be a member of Veterans For Peace in order to volunteer on the Arlington West project. We do, however, invite all who embrace our vision and Statement of Purpose to join us.
If you ARE a veteran or are currently serving on active duty, you might consider joining Veterans For Peace. If you are on active duty, there is nothing in the regulations that prohibit your voluntary membership in this organization. For more information on your rights under the UCMJ, see our Active Duty Resources page here. Just because you signed that bottom line on your contract does not mean you gave up all the rights you would otherwise be entitled to if you were not in the military. If you are not already familiar with the UCMJ and your Constitutional rights under the UCMJ, cease the moment to learn more and assert your rights.
If you are NOT a veteran, you can join Veterans For Peace by becoming an Associate Member. Simply follow Step 1 below, fill out the application, and send that along with your Associate Member contribution to the national Veterans For Peace mailing address shown below. You may also join online by going to the national Veterans For Peace web site.
Follow steps 1-3 below to become a member of Veterans For Peace:
Step 1: Download the VFP Membership application here.

HOW TO OBTAIN A COPY OF YOUR DD-214
