I would like this if I died. If I was really into shotgun's. Or at least, shotgun shooting.

In an email to CNN, David Kaufman, the charity's vice president, says the Veterans Foundation "has severed all ties" to the organization's president, Thomas Burch, who along with serving as president of the charity also has a full time job as a government lawyer with the Veterans Affairs agency in Washington.

Kind of like being the Secretary of State and running the Clinton Foundation.

I see the similarity that you're seeing...

to me though, the difference is the level of the victims!

In your scenario we have very wealthy people donating and 'hoping' they may get something in return 'down the road'.

The veteran's scam is coming from the opposite end of the wealth spectrum...

and I doubt that any of those that are making donations were hoping to receive any future benefit from their donations.

Just a few years ago the technology wouldn't have allowed for the lighting of the flags at night without access to power.

A great gesture.

Check out the photo and you might even see someone you recognize (or two)!!!
