Regarding: The group called
" The Veterans Support Organization "
Statement of Richard DiFederico,
Past State Commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Department of Connecticut.
As a Past State Commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Connecticut, I and all of the over 25,000 members of the VFW' s and our auxiliaries are appalled at the tactics of the group calling themselves, " The Veterans Support Organization" Their callous and despicable actions concerning the illegitimate fund raising campaign they have done here in Connecticut and around the country only dilutes the help for our Veterans that our citizens so freely donate to, thinking the money will be used to aid Connecticut's Veterans, when in fact very little, if any at all, is used for the Veterans here in our state. That they dress in military uniforms to portray themselves as Veterans, when many of them are not, further shows that they are nothing but a bunch of scam artists. The Citizens of Connecticut should be cautious as to whom they donate their hard earned money to, and not simply because someone slaps on a military uniform and puts their hand out for a donation in the name of a good cause. Vultures the likes of them should be dealt with in the harshest of legal terms as is possible. I am proud that my organization, the VFW has introduced a bill in our Statehouse to eliminate such scam artists as them in our state. Please view the Fox video below.
