Oliver Stone will direct a TV commercial as part of a campaign by MoveOn.org and VoteVets.org to bring U.S. troops home from Iraq.
“We have leaders in Washington who say they’re supporting our troops but the people who suffer most from their policies are the troops themselves,” Stone said.
“I decided to participate in this project because, as a veteran, I know that America needs to listen to our servicemen and women. They’ve been there and they know what’s really going on. They need to be part of this debate.”
Stone, a three-time Academy Award winner, is a Vietnam veteran. He won the Bronze Star for Valor and the Purple Heart with First Oak Leaf Cluster.
His most recent films are World Trade Center and Alexander.
