The VFW-PAC, a separate entity from the VFW, has angered hundreds of thousands of Veterans and members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars across America by issuing endorsements of such anti-military Democrats as Barbara Boxer (Ca), Nancy Pelosi (Ca), Harry Reid (Nv), and several others, including Florida’s Ron Klein, who never served over retired US Army Lt. Col. Allen West.
The outrage directed at the VFW National Organization prompted National Commander Richard Eubank to request the PAC withdraw all endorsements of all candidates as thousands of angry Veterans were refusing to re-enroll and resign their lifetime memberships.
“I cannot let this erosion of public support for our great organization continue. The apparent lack of the committee to address these concerns will lead to a proposal by me, as Commander-in-Chief, to amend the by-laws at the 112th National Convention for the purpose of dissolving the PAC. Meanwhile, under the authority granted to me as Commander-in-Chief in section 619 of the VFW National By-Laws and under section 620 of the Manual of Procedure, I am withdrawing all PAC appointments effective October 15, 2010,” said Eubanks
Also endorsed by the PAC were Oregon’s Ron Wyden and David Wu and Washington’s Patty Murray and ‘Baghdad’ Jim McDermott.
So far, so called mainstream media seems to remain quiet about so many Veterans being so angered.
