Iraq veteran speaks out against Cindy Sheehan

Phil Kiver, a former journalist and author of the bestselling book "182 Days In Iraq" is in Vermont this week to dispel the untruths being told by Cindy Sheehan. "I came to Vermont during Town Meeting week to show my support for the continued prosecution for the war on terror and to expose the adolescent convictions and the integrity of those who support the impeachment of President George W. Bush," Kiver said. Kiver is upset by several unreported incidents where fellow veterans were spat upon by anti-Iraq War protestors. In 2004, Kiver was sent to Iraq as a volunteer soldier and reporter for the U.S. Army. The trip resulted in his popular book. "My book is very introspective, but I know the themes and the things that happen in that book are very common to any armed conflict, Kiver said. You can pick up letters from the Civil War and read them and get the same sense and feelings from those soldiers, from World War II, Vietnam and now. Kiver will voice his position in Rutland, Manchester, Springfield and Brattleboro during the week.
