In the 1970s, Vietnam Veterans Against the War was created, joining those civilians who had been criticizing the war since the 1960s. In 1971, the organization began to encourage veterans to participate in public hearings and discuss war crimes they had witnessed during their service. In the Detroit hearings, these veterans described violence against civilians, how they were trained to dehumanize the enemy, and revealed their intention to keep other young men from having the same experiences.
