Home from Iraq was an initiated constitutional amendment in South Dakota that called for a symbolic measure in which South Dakota voters demand that the President of the United States, in support of the men and women serving in the Armed Forces of the United States, end the United States occupation of Iraq, and achieve "immediate, complete, safe, and orderly withdrawal of all United States forces." The initiative also called for non-military assistance to smooth the transition in Iraq.[1]


Curtis Marquardt was the sponsor of the initiative.

Some healthy debate on the issue can be found at the South Dakota War College blog


The initiative failed to collect the necessary signatures to make the ballot.
