Perkins's Visual Map
 

  • Anti-war activist
  • Founding member of Veterans For Peace

 

Korean War veteran Ken Perkins was a founding member of Veterans For Peace (VFP) in July 1985, along with Reverend Willard BicketJerry Genesio, Judy Genesio, and Doug Rawlings. At VFP's first organizational meeting that month, Perkins said that he and his comrades had created the group to “combat the John Wayne syndrome” and to demonstrate that “not all of us agree with the gung-ho, extra-conservative politics” of traditional veterans' organizations. Moreover, Perkins and his VFP comrades deplored the Reagan Administration's effort to assist the Contras of Nicaragua in their battle against that country's Marxist-Leninist Sandinista government.

In 2004, Perkins was an active supporter of Senator
John Kerry’s presidential campaign.
