The Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) started in 1967 with six Vietnam veterans

marching for peace in New York City. The purpose of the organization was to give voice to the

returning servicemen who opposed the on-going war in Southeast Asia. From six soldiers in

1967, the ranks of the membership eventually grew to over 30,000. This publication consists

of FBI reports dealing with every aspect of antiwar work carried out by the VVAW. The

collection also includes surveillance on a variety of other antiwar groups and individuals,

with an emphasis on student groups and Communist organizations.
