War veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan came to Capitol Hill in November 2008 to testify before Congress and give an eyewitness account about the horrors of war. Like the Winter Soldier hearings in March, when more than 200 service members gathered for four days in Silver Spring, Maryland to give their eyewitness accounts of the injustices occurring in Iraq and Afghanistan, Winter Soldier on the Hill was designed to drive home the human cost of war and occupation, this time to the very people in charge of doing something about it. The soldiers testified before a panel of lawmakers from the Congressional Progressive Caucus in a packed public hearing.
