Firsthand account from soldiers: Iraq and Afghanistan

March 13 to 16, Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan features testimony from U.S. veterans who served in those occupations, who are giving an account of what is really happening day in and day out, on the ground.

This four-day event brings together veterans from across the country to testify about their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan - and present video and photographic evidence. In addition, there will be panels of scholars, veterans, journalists, and other specialists to give context to the testimony. These panels will cover everything from the history of the GI resistance movement to the fight for veterans' health benefits and support.

Members of Iraq Veterans Against the War, Vietnam Veterans Against the War, Military Families Speak Out, and Gold Star Families Speak Out will attend the panels at Winter Soldier.

You can watch the live broadcasts online and on television, and to listen online and the radio. Find out more about how to watch or listen here. To find a local Winter Soldier screening event or to submit a screening event go to events map.
