"This interview was conducted in January, 1969, with Dave Kline and Guy Smith, two Vietnam veterans recently discharged from the army at Ft. Hood, Texas. The Ft. Hood 43 were the black GIs singled out to stand court-martial for a revolt at the base in August, 1968. Approximately 200 GIs, from a unit recently returned from South Vietnam, refused 'riot-control' orders to go to Chicago during the Democratic Convention. They refused to 'fight against our brothers'. The Ft. Hood revolt, like rebellions that have taken place within the last year both in military prisons in Vietnam and on at least a dozen bases within the U.S., evidence the rising tide of antimilitarist and antiwar sentiment within the armed forces. The GI struggle must be linked with the fights being waged against the U.S. imperialism throughout the world."
