I’m privileged to have today a close personal friend of many years. Brian Willson was born on the 4th of July. As a captain in the Air Force, he served as a combat security officer in Vietnam. He became a member of Vietnam Veterans Against the War and Veterans for Peace. As a lawyer, he became a member of the District of Columbia bar. Brian Willson has documented US policy in a dozen countries, identifying these policies that violate US constitutional and international laws prohibiting aggression and war crimes.
