CNN is doing us a favor by reporting about a possible scam, the Disabled Veterans National Foundation, based in Washington, D.C., and founded in 2007. Per CNN reporting, based upon the DVNF reporting to the IRS, little of the donations of hard working Americans is going to Disabled Veterans.
I am not much of a fan of big government, but when it comes to our Veterans, the work of the Department of Veterans Affairs should be covering the needs of those Veterans. And, it isn't like the VA Secretary doesn't understand. He lost part of a foot in Viet-nam.
If the VA isn't doing enough then the US Congress needs to investigate and appropriate. As for charities claiming to help Veterans, we should show caution. Not ignore. A friend of mine has been active in the Disable American Veterans.♠ They are a worthy cause.
