Mission statement:

The Full Disclosure campaign is a Veterans For Peace effort to speak truth to power and keep alive the antiwar perspective on the American war in Viet Nam -- which is now approaching a series of 50th anniversary events. It represents a clear alternative to the Pentagon's current efforts to sanitize and mythologize the Vietnam war and to thereby legitimize further unnecessary and destructive wars.

This Week in History: 1966

June 29 Citing increased infiltration of Communist guerrillas from North Vietnam into the South, the U.S. bombs oil depots around Hanoi and Haiphong, ending a self-imposed moratorium.

June 30 Fort Hood Three refuse deployment to Viet Nam. The Fort Hood Three were three US Army soldiers – Private First Class James Johnson, Private David Samas, and Private Dennis Mora – who refused to be deployed to Vietnam, calling the war “illegal and immoral”. They were stationed together at Fort Hood, Texas, in the 142nd Signal Company, 2nd Armored Division. Upon finding out they were to be sent to Vietnam, they prepared a joint statement which they intended to deliver during a press conference in New York. However, Mora had to deliver the statement alone after the other two were arrested. The Three eventually brought the case to the Supreme Court as Mora v. McNamara (389 U.S. 934), claiming that the Vietnam War was illegal, among other things. The court declined to hear the case in review.

On Route 13, which links Vietnam to the Cambodian border, American forces are attacked by the NLF. Only American air and artillery support prevents a complete disaster.
