"Operation First Casualty" Comes to Chicago

OFC A press advisory by the Iraq Veterans Against the War reads: "In an effort to illuminate the true reality of the conflict in Iraq, members of Iraq Veterans Against the War engaged in a series of street theater actions around the Chicago area on Monday, June 18.

"Entitled, "Operation First Casualty" (OFC) because the first casualty of war is truth, this action was made up of reenactments which highlight various aspects of life in combat in Iraq. The action is treated like a military operation with participants in full military uniform, however, no weapons were used at any time. This was IVAW's fourth OFC."

The IVAW patrol route started at Union Station and then went to Boeing, the Thompson Center, Daley Plaza, Chicago Board of Trade, Federal Plaza, Metropolitan Correctional Center, Water Tower, Michigan Avenue and ended at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. See photos
