This note is in response to Michael Bibby's query regarding Vietnam GI
protest materials. Your best bet, I suspect, is going to the the State
Historical Society of Wisconsin. That facility's holdings on US social
movements (including GI protest) is fantastic, and they hold the papers of
the national VVAW. The facility I manage, the archives of the Wisconsin
Veteramns Museum in Madison, also has some good materials, and if you happen
to be in Madison anyway you might find items of use here as well.

If you have not seem Richard Moser's new book THE NEW WINTER SOLDIERS you
should have a look. Moser, who is at Middle Tennessee State, will also be

I just thought of Jerry Giglio (sp?) who runs the Broken Rifle Press in
Trenton, NJ.

If anybody can find public domain stuff, I bet he can. I simply can't
locate an address. Steve Gomes or Kali has it, though. Practically
everything he works with is GI resistence publishing.

Nevermind your mailing address, I found it.

My old grad school buddy Mack Smith, now an English prof. at U. Mich.,
founded such a paper. Maybe he has some copies! Try him at

But do it soon -- I keep getting messages from U. Mich. that they
are going to close this machine within the week, and I don't know what
Mack's new address will be!
