OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Anti-war protesters who spent nearly a month outside President Bush's Texas ranch are in Oklahoma City asking Bush to bring American servicemen and women home.

The activists say Oklahomans should demand an end to the conflict. They're completing the first leg of a bus tour that will end in Washington next month.

Vietnam veteran Patrick Miller of Moline, Kansas -- wearing a Veterans for Peace T-shirt -- says he doesn't believe the war is a noble cause. Miller says he believes troops were sent to Iraq for a lie.

Another Vietnam veteran, Elliott Adams of Sharon Springs, New York, says Americans are paying a high price for the war but forget about the human cost.

The group spoke in front of empty boots and crosses representing some of the almost 1,900 US soldiers killed in the War.
