“It’s about the demilitarization of society.”

DAMVia Stephen Funk, who was the very first U.S. soldier I interviewed for the book three years ago. I’m so heartened to see it: while Iraq Veterans Against the War argued out a nonviolence resolution, these guys see it simply: “It’s about the demilitarization of society.”

Among demilitarizations tasks they include eradicating sexism, which matters more than ever now as military sexual assaults keep rising. More later on that. But meanwhile, savor the prospect of these two streams weaving themselves together.
