Sisters: we are appealing to you as our last hope to keep our men off the Coral Sea. (handbill)

San Francisco: SOS Movement, 1971. Leaflet, printed on one side only, 8.5x11 inches on goldenrod paper, very good condition.

The USS Coral Sea was one of a small number of aircraft carriers "which form the life support system for Nixon's air war in Indochina." The SOS movement began on that ship which docked in Alameda. This leaflet introduces the case of 13 sailors who turned themselves in as conscientious objectors and were at the time being held in the brig on Treasure Island. Issued by wives of the sailors, it asks women, especially other Navy wives, to attend a vigil at Treasure Island Naval Air Station.
