Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan was the title of a conference held recently in Washington, DC, that allowed vets from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to tell their stories. The conference hearkened back to the "Winter Soldier" testimonies held thirty years ago during the Vietnam War. Iraq War combat veteran Jon Michael Turner told his story.

"If at the end of a war story you feel uplifted, or if you feel that some small bit of rectitude has been salvaged from the larger waste, then you have been made the victim of a very old and terrible lie."

-Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried
