Veterans for Peace demonstrate Thursday in Marine Park against the Iraq war and in remembrance of Americans who have died in the war. The group plans to hold a vigil every Thursday. "It's primarily a quiet, respectful vigil for those who have died," said Ed Hein, member of Veterans for Peace. The number 1,857 in front of the flag-draped coffin is the number of U.S. war dead as of last Thursday.
