  "It's wonderful! It's definitely one of the films we'd like to highlight at screening events. Its 28-minute length and focus on military recruitment make it perfect for teachers to use in high school and college classrooms. I particularly loved the extended interviews with Stan Goff and other veterans."
-Glenn Kissack, Educators to Stop the War, Forest Hill, NY

Soldiers Speak Out is a powerful, first-hand testament to the reality of the military experience told entirely in the words of American veterans who have been to war and are now opposing it. We hear how they came to join the military, about their experiences in training and in war, and what led to the turning point when they decided they could no longer, in good conscience, participate in the war or keep silent. This half-hour documentary sheds light on the growing and courageous anti-war and anti-occupation movement within the military and their families, and serves as a counter-recruitment and organizing tool for activists, schools and organizations. It provides a sober view of the war in Iraq and an important counterpoint to the 'stay-the-course' rhetoric of the Bush administration.
