Stone, MoveOn.org Join Forces

Director Oliver Stone is teaming up with MoveOn.org and VoteVets.org for a project called “VideoVets: Bring Our Troops Home.” Viewers can vote at MoveOn’s site to pick the winning entry from a series of more than 20 videotaped interviews of veterans and family members speaking out about the U.S. policy in Iraq. Stone will make the top entry into a 30-second TV spot.

“We have leaders in Washington who say they’re ‘supporting our troops’ — but the people who suffer most from their policies are the troops themselves,” Stone said in a statement released Thursday. “I decided to participate in this project because, as a veteran, I know that America needs to listen to our servicemen and -women. They’ve been there and they know what’s really going on. They need to be part of this debate.”

Below is one example of the taped interviews, this one featuring John Bruhns, a former Army infantry sergeant.
