A group of twenty veterans from all over the United States traveled to Capitol Hill January 21 to talk to members of Congress about why the prison at Guantanamo Bay needs to be closed. They said it puts our soldiers lives at risk. They said we have to be "the good guys." We can't support torture and we can't support the prison at Guantanamo Bay.

New Security Action worked along with VoteVets to tell create this video featuring veterans explaining why the prison puts our military at risk and creates a hypocritical view of American justice.
