Armistice Day For Peace – Saturday November 11:
Every year for over a decade we have had our Armistice Peace March behind the “official” Veterans Day parade in Boston. We continued that tradition this year as well.

We formed up at the corner of Beacon Street and Charles at the edge of the Boston Common and marched to Sam Adams Park at Fanueil Hall for our Armistice Day Program:
This year’s MC was our Smedley Butler Brigade-VFP coordinator Vietnam veteran Dan Luker. Along with music and poetry readings we lined up speakers knowledgeable about Korea and Iran/Afghanistan.
