    Subject: Target Stores

    Vietnam Veterans Association By Dick Forrey

    We asked our local Target store to be a sponsor of the Vietnam
    Veterans Memorial Wall during our spring recognition event. We
    received back a reply from Target management that "veterans do
    not meet our area of giving. We only donate to the areas of the
    arts, social actions, gay and lesbian causes, and education."

    My thought: If the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and veterans
    in general, do not meet their donation criteria, something is
    wrong at Target. We were not asking for thousands of dollars, not
    even hundreds, but simply sponsorship of an endorsement for a
    memorial remembrance.

    As follow-up, I E-mailed the corporate headquarters and their
    response was the same. Personally, I will NOT be purchasing
    anything at Target Stores again. If the Vietnam Veteran or
    Veterans in general do not meet their area of giving, then why
    should I, as a Vietnam veteran, spend my hard earned money in
    their stores?

    Please pass this on to as many people as you know.

    PS: Target will also not allow the Marines to collect for "Toys
    For Tots" during the holidays.

    Thanks, Bob... i wasn't passing it on, rather attempting to validate its authenticity; i couldn't remember the name of the site you just posted and figured someone on here would remember, so that's why i posted... i wasn't trying to give anyone any false information... You actually posted exactly what i was looking for; thanks... :)
