Supporting our Vets...

#1 Unread post by dr_bar » Tue Oct 22, 2013 9:46 pm

If a store in the USA didn't support American Vets, would people shop there? Would there be a public outcry?

Well, in Canada, we have this "American" store that refuses to let our Vets sell Poppies as a fund raiser in their stores. I've never heard of a store chain doing this during the lead-up to Remembrance Day. Poppies are sold by the Canadian Legion only once a year to support programs for Vets.

So, the name of that store??? TARGET...

Let's make them a Target and refuse to shop there...

That story was a misunderstanding apparently. Both target and the head office for the legion have come out and said that. A bit of follow up.

I'll still boycott them, as the article says, saying one thing then doing a 180, doesn't wash with me...

3rd Battalion 84th field artillery regiment U.S. Army named after General Black Jack Pershing we did not even have a cannon :mrgreen: we were intermediate nuclear missles by the 1980's. Sorry took so long I have not checked this in awhile.
