Cindy Sheehan, the California mother, whose son was killed while serving in Iraq in 2004 has been traveling with the peace caravan. But Sheehan and the group were confronted by a military sergeant at Travis AFB where the protest turned heated and was anything but peaceful.
"He got very aggressive with us. He pushed and shoved us. That's not right," said Sheehan.

But Sandra Kuta, a blue star mom with a son in Iraq points out that people sign up voluntarily and the military oath they take represents their commitment to the entire nation.
"I would like nothing more than to have my son back home, but he has a job to do," said Kuta.
