Well it has been sometime since i posted anything but there is something that has been bothering me and others for a very long time.. And today i got another letter (email) from a Veterans Wife... So i asked permission to share as long as i kept their full names and state to myself...
We all complained about China making American Flags, especially when we discovered some were being used to drape a Veteran\Soldiers caskets, now it's time to step up and Honor Our Veterans the true American Way.....
MY HUSBAND JOE AND I BOTH KNOW HOW MUCH YOU CARE AND TAKE CARE OF VETERANS WHERE EVER YOU CAN. INCLUDING THE PAGES YOU HAVE MADE CONCERNING VETERANS. HE HAS LOOKED AT THEM.
... JOE IS A VETERAN SERVING LITTLE OVER 26 YEARS. HE HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE VFW OVER THE YEARS. AND HE DOES GET FREE GIFTS. WHAT HAS UPSET HIM AND ME IS LAST MONTH HE GOT A FREE WHITE SHIRT FROM VFW WITH AMERICAN FLAG ON IT. TODAY HE GOT A FREE NAIL POCKET WITH SCISSORS, CLIPPER, TWIZZERS, AND NAIL FILE.
... THE PROBLEM WITH BOTH THESE GIFTS THAT WERE DESIGNED IN "AMERICA" IS THAT THEY WERE MADE IN 'CHINA". TO SAY THE LEAST THIS INFURIATED BOTH OF US. WHY ARE THEY MADE OVER THERE?
SURELY THERE ARE COMPANIES IN THIS COUNTRY WHO MAKES THESE SORT OF THINGS. PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY NEEDING JOBS.
.. WE WILL AWAIT YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS. AND WHAT IF ANYTHING CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT. THANKYOU FOR YOUR TIME.
Now i have taken the time to message Ivanka and am hoping she will respond and we can get this changed ASAP.. I know nothing happens as fast as we all wish but we need all items gifted to a Veteran or a Soldier Serving to be made in the USA
