    Target Corp. needs to straighten out there priorities

    This was forwarded to me by a fellow Marine Veteran






    by Dick Forrey of the Vietnam Veterans Association



    Recently we asked the local TARGET store to be a proud sponsor of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall during our spring recognition event.

    We received the following reply from the local TARGET management: "Veterans do not meet our area of giving. We only donate to the arts, social action groups, gay & lesbian causes, and education."

    So I'm thinking, if the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and
    veterans in general do not meet their donation criteria, then something is really wrong at this TARGET store. We were not asking for thousands of dollars, not even hundreds, just a small sponsorship for a memorial remembrance.

    As a follow-up, I e-mailed the TARGET U.S. corporate headquarters and their response was the same. That's their national policy.

    Then I looked into the company further. They will not allow the Marines to collect for 'Toys for Tots' at any of their stores. And during the recent Iraq deployment, they would not allow families of employees who were called up for active duty to continue their insurance coverage while they were on military service. Then as I dig further, TARGET is a French-owned corporation.

    Now, I'm thinking again. If TARGET can not support American
    Veterans, then why should I and my family support their stores by spending our hard earned American dollars and to have their profits sent to France. Without the American Vets, where would France be today?

    Feel free to pass this along to whomever you want.

    Sincerely,

    Dick Forrey

    Greetings:

    Have you ever found yourself playing around on the Internet, bored, with no particular place to go that holds your interest? Then check out these (11) Websites; they are entertaining and, alas, educational.

    We all receive emails with claims and stories that are too good or bizarre to be true (a dead giveaway).

    However, every now and then one comes across that seems creditable. I have learned to be suspicious of everything that comes into my email inbox. The following list contains some sites I have found that have greatly aided in discerning fact from fiction, frauds, and hoaxes. Some of them are just plain fun to read and wonder how anyone can fall for them. As a sibling of mine has quoted to me, I think, therefore I doubt (David Gerrold).

    Hope you enjoy,

    John A. (TracGunny)
