"War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today."
John F. Kennedy

Sir! No Sir!

In the 1960’s, an anti-war movement emerged that altered the course of history. This movement didn't take place on college campuses, but in barracks and on aircraft carriers, in army stockades, navy brigs, and in the dingy towns that surround military bases. And it spread throughout the battlefields of Vietnam. Hundreds went to prison and thousands into exile.

Yet today few people know about the GI movement against the war in Vietnam.

Click here: This film will change all that.

It does four things:
1) Brings to life the GI movement through the stories of those who were part of it;
2) Reveals the defiance that the movement gave birth to with never seen material;
3) Explores the profound impact that movement had on the military and the war itself; and
4) Tells the story of how and why the GI Movement has been erased from the public memory.
