I continually am bombarded with mail quests for money in order to aid veterans who are suffering from poverty or physical disabilities. It is rare for me to go through an evening without being told on TV that money is needed to help our suffering veterans and there is always some organization ready and willing to help them. The National Vietnam Veterans Foundation wants each and every American to send in their dollars and ensure that no veteran goes without.
Unfortunately, this “Veteran Foundation” has taken in over $29 million and handed back to veterans the enormous amount of about ONE MILLION! Its President J. Thomas Burch WORKS FOR THE VA! This man drives to work in a Rolls Royce, and guess who paid for it? Frankly, these days I triple check before sending money to “veterans organizations.” Oh, the Charity Navigator rates this Veteran organization with a ZERO.
