On Jan 21., the day after the presidential inauguration, hundreds of thousands of people from across the country poured into the nation’s capital to participate in The Women’s March on Washington, a protest against the Trump administration that inundated the streets of D.C. with a sea of protest signs and pink hats. Task & Purpose spoke with a group of veterans who participated in the event.

Of course, each had his or her own personal motivations for marching, too. Here’s a lightly edited version of what they had to say.
