  •  I had a run in with the Ga ..Carroll County DAV (4+ / 0-)

    about something similiar,  A young man was killed in
    the WOT and then another vet was killed in Iraq from our hometown and the young man who died in Africa did not have his name added.  

    There were several orgs. in that county and each blaming the other and it was DAV that hit the button with me and the young man's Daddy who was a staunch conservative saw his son from Iraq's name had been added and the young man from Africa was not ..He told them to take his son's name off ..as this was not right.
    He in fact brought the attention to me.  I wrote some folks about it and his name was never added but they were naming a highway after him so.....that is something.
    I know there is injustice in everything but when we can speak up it is best.  The man who lost his son in Iraq served in Persian Gulf, his Dad served in Vietnam and his Grandaddy in WWII.....Most 82nd airborne.  
    The other vet who died on a mission not in country was defended by the Father of the soldier from Iraq.  Quite a story and our little org presented a Certificate of Recognition to the family   I really understand
