We will recite the names of those fallen from Massachusetts who passed away in
support of what we believe to be illegal and illicit wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan. Flowers will be dropped into Boston Harbor in memory of these
young men and women. Names of Iraq and Afghanistan civilians killed in the
conflicts will also be read by family and friends.
We mourn deeply all those who should not have lost their lives in war, sadly,
perpetrated by misguided leaders, leading a misinformed public and an
over-extended military into two immoral wars we greatly oppose.
“War is a Racket”! -Smedley D. Butler, Major General U.S.M.C.
