William Fulbright, D-Arkansas (back to the camera), chariman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee faces a jammed committee room as his group takes testimony 4/22/1971 from John Kerry (behind microphone), one of the leaders of a week-long anti-war demonstration being conducted by the Vietnam Veterans Against the War. Kerry, a three-time decorated former Navy Lt./jg, made a moving plea to end the war, asking every American to consider who would be the last chosen "to die for a mistake." Many of Kerry's Vietnam veteran comrades are behind him listening to his plea. --- WHC UPI/UPI
