Artist's Description

As the children play on the Santa Monica Pier (background left), Veterans for Peace honour their dead colleagues by constructing a temporary memorial, Arlington West, for soldiers lost and injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is done every Sunday. Caskets represent the recently killed (last week) and the crosses represent all the dead (white representing one death, red representing 10 deaths. Such a contrast … life goes on … but, lest we forget.

“Veterans For Peace is a national organization founded in 1985. It is structured around a national office in Saint Louis, MO and comprised of members across the country organized in chapters or as at-large members. There is an annual convention each year attended by our members, families and supporters from across the nation. Members receive periodic VFP publications.

The organization includes men and women veterans of all eras and duty stations from the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), World War II, the Korean, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War and current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as other conflicts. Our collective experience tells us wars are easy to start and hard to stop and that those hurt are often the innocent. Thus, other means of problem solving are necessary."From: http://www.arlingtonwestsantamonica.org/
