Veterans from all over the country ended a week-long convention in Madison on Sunday.
"Veterans for Peace" wrapped up their 28th annual get together at the Capital Lakes Health Center.
The convention hosted speakers who promoted peace and raised concerns about war.
Veterans said a message of peace is stronger coming from those who have lived through combat.
"These warriors who have been taught war, when they come back and become warriors of peace, they're the ultimate people who can speak about really what it was all about," said Judy Miner of Veterans for Peace.
More than 320 veterans from WWII through to the Iraq Wars attended the conference.
The group plans to head to St. Louis for next year's event.
