    Vietnam Veterans Association - By Dick Forrey

    We asked our local Target store to be a sponsor of the Vietnam Veterans
    Memorial Wall during our spring recognition event. We received back a reply
    from Target management that "veterans do not meet our area of giving. We
    only donate to the areas of the arts, social actions, gay and lesbian
    causes, and education."

    My thought: If the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, and veterans in general,
    do not meet their donation criteria, something is wrong at Target. We were
    not asking for thousands of dollars, not even hundreds, but simply
    sponsorship of an endorsement for a memorial remembrance.

    As a follow-up, I E-mailed the corporate headquarters and their response was
    the same.

    Personally, I will NOT be purchasing anything at Target Stores again. If the
    Vietnam Veteran or Veterans in general do not meet their area of giving,
    then why should I, as a Vietnam veteran, spend my hard earned money in their


    Target will also not allow the Marines to collect for "Toys For Tots" during
    the holidays.

    Please pass this on to as many people as you know.
