With the U.S. military presence in Iraq expected to end by 2011, an organization of current and former servicemembers opposed to the war there is widening its mandate to include Afghanistan.

At its annual convention in College Park, Md., earlier this month, members of Iraq Veterans Against the War vigorously debated what the group’s stance should be on Afghanistan, according to some participants. Opposition to the war quietly became official policy earlier this year following an online membership poll. The vote was said to be close, though no details were publicly released.

"A decision has been made in terms of our position, which is we are against it," said Jose Vasquez, executive director of IVAW and co-founder of the New York City chapter.

There are many vets, active military and retired on ATS. I for one would like to get their opinion on the growing descent in the military in regards to the WoT.
Are their any similarities to Nam?

Stars and Flags but no responses.

Let's try it one more time before oblivion.

I would really like to hear form other vets and their take on this issue.
