Albert's Birthday Reminder: Send Love, but not CDs or Stamps -
As Albert's 67th birthday approaches, on February 19, we want to remind supporters that he is not allowed to receive stamps or cds. Cards and messages are always the best gift, but if you want to send more, the best way is to give some funds to his www.jpay.com account (#00072148) so he can buy stamps, cds or other personal items from the prison store. Through jpay, he can receive emails, although any photos sent will be black and white. If you send an email, jpay will ask if you want to pay extra for him to have money to respond via email. However, Albert is unfortunately not allowed to send email, so do not choose this option.
His mailing address is:

Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam
Tuesday, January 28, 7:30 - 9:30 PM
First Congregational Church of Berkeley, 2345 Channing Way, Berkeley
"This deeply disturbing book provides the fullest documentation yet of the brutality and ugliness that marked America's war in Vietnam. No doubt some will charge Nick Turse with exaggeration or overstatement. Yet the evidence he has assembled is irrefutable." - Andrew J. Bacevich, Col, U.S.Army (Ret)
Nick Turse is a journalist, historian, managing editor for TomDispatch.com, and a fellow at the Nation Institute. His work has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, and The Nation. His investigations of U.S. war crimes in Vietnam have gained him a Ridenhour Prize for Reportorial Distinction, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a fellowship at Harvard University's Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.
Hosted by Phillip Butler, PhD, a 1961 graduate of the United States Naval Academy and a former light-attack carrier pilot. In 1965 he was shot down over North Vietnam, where he spent eight years as a prisoner of war. A combat veteran awarded two Silver Stars, two Legion of Merits, two Bronze Stars and two Purple Heart medals, Butler is now a peace and justice activist with Veterans for Peace.
Co-Sponsored by Veterans for Peace, Chapter 69 (SF), American Legion Post 315 (SF), and Veterans for Peace, Chapter 162 (East Bay)
