Two members of anti-war veteran's group escorted off Fort Bragg

FORT BRAGG (AP) -- Two members of an anti-war veteran's group were escorted off Fort Bragg after handing out baked goods and anti-war literature. The Army veterans, 28-year-old Jason Hurd and 23-year-old Steve Casey, were told they needed a permit Monday after they began handing out gift bags outside a post shopping center. Attached to the bags was the monthly newsletter from Iraq Veterans Against the War. Both men belong to its Asheville chapter. Hurd and Casey said they would go get a permit, but as they packed up, base police arrived after a soldier complained about the literature. No charges were filed.
