From the NY Times, so it has to be true.
Veterans were more numerous among the crowd.
Dressed in the olive green, military-issued flight jacket that he said he wore during the invasion of Iraq while serving as a Marine sergeant, Jack Teller, 26, said he joined a caravan from Greenville, N.C., because he felt that it was his duty.
“I don’t like wearing the jacket because it reminds me that I participated in an immoral and illegal war,” said Mr. Teller, who had “Iraq Veterans Against the War” stenciled on the back of his jacket. “But it’s important to make a political statement.”
A Marine sergeant wearing an Air Force olive green flight jacket, and claiming he wore it during the invasion of Iraq? Uh, not likely. More likely he's another example of the Jessie MacDeath Syndrome, where wannabe's are desperate to be seen as a member of the military, but never had the balls to join up.
Another example in the very next paragraph:
Fernando Braga, a 24-year-old Bronx native who is a member of the Army National Guard, said that he was skeptical of the war before it started. Mr. Braga said his views hardened into opposition while he served in Iraq from March 2004 through January 2005.
“My own commander told us when we arrived that if we thought we were there for any reason other than oil then we had another think coming,” he said. “I realized even commanding officers were against it but following orders.”
Yeah, sure. Who was his commanding officer, LT Watada? Speaking LT Watada, his daddy was at the protest.
Robert Watada, 67, of Honolulu, a retired executive with the State of Hawaii who said his son, First Lt. Ehren K. Watada, was to be court-martialed next month for refusing to deploy to Iraq, said: “So many thousands of our own have died and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and for what? And still we are having to push Congress to block the president.”
Good luck with that Robert. The only people more cowardly than your son is the Democratic majority in Congress.
