Winter Soldiers Scott Carrier & Barrett Golding
For the first time boots-on-the-ground soldiers testified before Congress (C-SPAN) in May 2008 about how the Iraq war is being waged. Those testifying were members of the Iraq Veterans Against the War. A couple months earlier the group gathered to record soldiers and marines "giving an accurate account of what is really happening day in and day out." They called the event Winter Soldier, taking the name from a similar 1971 movement of Vietnam vets.
