Military Families Speak Out

Jeff McKenzie, Peacemaker, is a co-founder of Military Families Speak Out. Jeff was called to help start this organization because his son Jeremy and his son's wife Nicole were both in the military. This presented a real dilemma to Jeff and his family since Jeff is fundamentally a pacifist and it looked as if our country was going to war thus putting his loved ones in harms way. This is his story.
