Over 10,000 service members from Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) are being deployed this year to Afghanistan, many with untreated injuries and trauma from previous deployments or their time in the military. In response, IVAW has launched Operation Recovery: A Campaign to Stand Up For Service Members' Right To Heal. Later this year IVAW organizers from around the Pacific Northwest will converge on JBLM to spark strategic resistance among service members fed up with more than ten years of war and occupation.
