VIDEO: JP Veteran of Iraq About His Evolution As an Opponent of War

Marine Sgt. Liam Madden served for seven months in the war zone. He was against the war from the start and talks about how his method of opposing it has evolved from protest to demonstrating through the way he lives his life that there is a better way.

Marine Sgt. Liam Madden lives on Heath Street in a house surrounded by gardens that produce much of its occupants' food.

Madden, originally from Vermont, opposed the Iraq War from the start. The Marine Corps considered giving him something other than an "honorable discharge" for his anti-war protests. The controversy attracated national attention, with his story being aired on 60 Minutes and many other outlets.

These days, however, Madden is less concerned with organizing marches than with proving, through the way he lives his own life, that there is a better, more sustainable, more loving way to exist.
