Some of the more than 1,000 servicemembers who have signed a petition to Congress seeking the end of the Iraq war will appear on “60 Minutes” on Sunday, as well as other troops opposed to the group, CBS reported. “60 Minutes” is to be shown on American Forces Network overseas at 7 p.m. Monday night in most locations.

Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Jonathan Hutto and Marine Sgt. Liam Madden, who initiated the petition, appear on the show, CBS said in a release Friday.

Though the segment was still being edited Friday, a “60 Minutes” representative told Stripes that roughly seven servicemembers express frustration with their efforts in Iraq.

Other troops interviewed from Iraq offer correspondent Lara Logan an opposing viewpoint, according to the CBS representative.
