Peace Helmet Award
Over the years Veterans for Peace has recognized members
whose service is integral to the work of VFP.
This recognition is acknowledged with the presentation of the Peace Helmet Award.
Helmet The award is a beautiful stained glass replica of the VFP symbol
of the Dove of Peace on a military helmet.
These Stained Glass Peace Helmets have for the past 20 years,
been created for us exclusively by McIntyre Stained Glass studio
This year was a very busy year and a lot of members qualified
for this award so we are giving out more than we usually do.
All of these people played leadership rolls on at least one major project, participated in at least 3 other projects and attend meetings.
This year 6 people will receive 6 Stained Glass Peace Helmets:
Mary Bahr : Mary is our web-master, a counselor for the GI rights Hotline, Coordinated the cost of war project, a member of the committee of correspondence, Tuesday sign holding, attended demonstrations in DC, Orlando and tables for us at events.
Bill Gilbert and David Henderson : Bill and Dave Coordinated the buses that we used for the trips we made to DC this year. They are both members of the committee of correspondence, participated in Tuesday sign holding and attended demonstrations in DC. Dave also went to the demonstration in Orlando. They both put in many full days on our Memorial Day Project. Both table for us at events.

Bill Salmon : Bill is our attorney, he reviews all matters and plans to protect our legal rights. He is available 24-7 and because he lives next to Scott Camil’s house he is called on often to work on our projects, to make sure that we have everything we need, often buying supplies and tools, never asking to be reimbursed.
