Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains 61 issues of "The Bond: The Servicemen's Newspaper", an American Servicemen's Union newspaper containing articles and letters written by servicemen. Topics relate to the antiwar movement, the Vietnam War, and American foreign policy.
The Bondwas an anti-war newspaper intended for soldiers that was initially started in Berkeley, CA. in June 1967 by editor Bill Callison. In 1968, Callison transferred the entire property and rights of The Bond to a staff of servicemen, veterans, and supporters led by the new editor, Pvt. Andrew Stapp. It was at that time that The Bond moved from Berkeley to New York, N.Y. in care of the Committee for GI Rights. Eventually, The Bond would become the voice for the American Servicemen's Union, an unofficial union for the U.S. military that was formed by Andy Stapp in 1967 in opposition to the Vietnam War.
