To add insult to injury, the VETS had to pay for the Memorial through their donations. They ended up with a corner of a park with virtually no parking within any reasonable distance. In the meantime, the African-American History and Culture Museum will have a prime location adjacent to the Washington Monument and will be 50% funded by Federal Tax revenue to the tune of several hundred million dollars. Equality, isn't that what America is all about? My personal opinion is that American Veterans should at least get the same respect as any other group of Americans?
