Three people were arrested on November 4 during the monthly peace vigil at Vandenberg AFB main gate. Dennis Apel again was cited for a “ban and bar” violation. Two other vigilers in the designated protest area were arrested for not identifying themselves with ID. One, Bud Booth, 84 year old veteran of WWII Army Air Corps, and a long-time peace activist at Vandenberg, was placed in metal handcuffs and while being searched was grabbed at the center part of the handcuffs and swung around, tearing his shirt and skin on his arm. Paramedics were summoned to administer first aid.
