Mar 24, 2006 — Every Saturday from 11am - noon, anti-war protestors stand in front of the Potsdam Post Office for a weekly vigil. This Saturday, in honor of the 3rd anniversary of the Iraq war, the groups will follow the vigil with a "Walk For Peace", ending at the Community Center of the First Presbyterian Church, 42 Elm St, where a discussion about the war will be held.
Dr. Mike Mullen will be there. He's with North Country Veterans for Peace. He was an army doctor in the Gulf War and is now an emergency room physician in Potsdam.
He told Gregory Warner that he never supported the current war in Iraq. But he was inspired to join Veterans for Peace about a year ago, after he heard Congressman John Murtha speak out against the war and urge a timeline for bringing American troops home. Congressman Murtha is a veteran of Korea and Vietnam.
