Young war veterans in Lafayette Park
Michelle Boorstein reports from Lafayette Park:
Among the Iraq war veterans in Lafayette Park, was Daniel Black, a 24 year-old from South Orange, N.J., who served in the U.S. Marines for five years, including in Iraq in 2004. Waiting to speak at the podium with another group of young war veterans, Black said he became politically active after more reading led him to believe "the true motives behind this war was imperial ambition and not at all what I signed up for, which was to help protect my country and to express gratitude for being born an American. I felt I had been used and lied too."
