Sometimes organizations don’t support the candidates that we would expect. Supporting single issue organizations like the NRA, and the VFW is to support no change. The incumbents typically have the edge when it comes to their support. This has some of the VFW folks pretty upset when they won’t support their own.
People, I’ve been pissed before. Mad, even. Upset. But this? THIS is treasonous to me. For a ‘so called’ veterans organization to pick a NON-SERVING, NON-VETERAN over one of the MOST PROMISING veterans running in politics is heinous. Disturbing. And shows just how far off-track the VFW has become.
As you may recall, when I returned from Iraq one of the first things I did was join VFW and Legion as ‘life members’. Now, it seems, the time has come to rip, burn, and toss my Lifetime Membership for the VFW. I feel like they have completely left us at the station here.
