Veterans For Peace Caravan for
Katrina Reconstruction

In 2006 a large group of veterans came together and trekked to Louisiana to do volunteer reconstruction work with survivors of Hurricane Katrina. The motto for this operation was: Defund the War – Rebuild the Gulf Coast!
This year, VFP is again encouraging vets to gather under the same banner. Beginning at the Fayetteville rally on march 17, VFP will organize a veterans’ caravan for Katrina reconstruction. The caravan will leave Fayetteville haded to several major military bases in the southeast, enroute to communities on the Mississippi coast ravaged by the hurricane, and neglected by government.
