Ken Mayers was a U.S. Marine Corps officer from 1958 to 1978.  An activist for peace and justice since the late 1960s, Mayers experiences “the joy of resistance” through his work with Veterans for Peace, including weekly peace vigils, direct action support with Native American “water protectors” and with local activists in Okinawa who oppose expansion of U.S. military bases.

1960: "I started to think, we are definitely not always on the right side of history."

1971-73: "The Marine Corps always gets the last laugh."

"You've gotta learn to love the struggle."
