Operation Recovery: Stop the Deployment of Traumatized Troops
Take the Pledge
The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are continuing through the use of exhausted troops who have been on multiple tours of duty and suffer deeply from the trauma of war. It is cruel and inhumane to deploy soldiers who are medically unfit for combat.
Join IVAW in our effort to stop the deployment of troops suffering from PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Military Sexual Trauma. By signing our pledge, you agree to do what you can to help defend the rights of soldiers to heal and to hold accountable those who are responsible for deploying traumatized troops. As the Operation Recovery campaign unfolds, we will be calling on you to help in a variety of ways, including:
- Spreading the word about this campaign to your friends, co-workers, and family;
- Writing letters-to-the-editor of your local paper about the issues affecting troops who suffer from military trauma;
- Helping identify those responsible for deploying traumatized troops in your local area;
- Contacting your representatives about the plight of traumatized troops.
These wars can only continue through the re-use of previously deployed and traumatized troops. Help us put this practice to an end.
I pledge my support to Operation Recovery, IVAW’s campaign to stop the deployment of traumatized troops.
I demand accountability from those who are responsible for sending women and men who suffer from PTSD, TBI, and MST back into the very source of their trauma.
I demand an end to the cruel practice of deploying traumatized troops.
I pledge to support the Operation Recovery campaign to the best of my ability. In a war where soldiers are being injured faster than the military can treat them, I will work alongside veterans and service members to end the cycles of trauma and abuse.
