Watch It - The IAVA

IAVA stands for The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. This is a little film about them and their attempts to get their issues heard which is tough nowadays with the major media networks taking a particularly sterilized view of the war. It's interesting to note how a lot of them feel like America is apathetic towards the war. I think unfortunately that is generally true. That makes me think about the veterans that came home from Vietnam. They were spit at and called baby killers which is awful of course, but how must it feel to come home to an apathetic country? What kind of a welcome is that?
