Some national veterans organizations vow to remove members charged in the Capitol riots

(CNN)Some national veterans organizations have vowed to remove members who were charged in the Capitol riots, taking a stand against the violent attack last week.

Current and former US military members participated in the insurrection, according to news reports and court records.
A handful of veterans organizations told CNN they are actively checking their membership lists for veterans who have come up in the news. Organizations like the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and AMVETS said they also plan to revoke memberships of those found guilty of illegal acts or violence.

"We believe that our members have a very sacred right to protest," Dan Clare, a spokesman for DAV, told CNN. "They fought and sacrificed to protect that freedom, but when protesters cross the line and commit illegal acts, especially in the nation's capitol, we found it to be abhorrent."
