To the Editor:
This is in response to the article in Thursday's edition about the flag display ("Veterans seeking to pass the torch," page 2 ). Yes, VietNow is looking for a group to take over, as we are running out of energy. Part of the article talked about VietNow National, and their dealing with Lisa Madigan, saying the money they raised did not go to charitable causes.
I'd like to assure the good people of DeKalb County that supported the DeKalb County chapter that every penny we took in over the past 33 years went to good causes and was spent right here in our area.
We're proud of what we did in our community and want no one to think of us in a bad light. Even though VietNow does not exist anymore, I will proudly wear the hat.
