» Letter to the Editor by Jacob Winters
We, the APSU College Republicans, would like to respectfully set some things straight concerning comments made against our Benefits Dinner proceeds in The All State.
Firstly, we as an organization have actually tried to make contact with both the Wounded Warrior Project and Operation Once in a Lifetime. With that in mind, we have found there is no local chapter of the Wounded Warriors Project in Clarksville.
Also, when we tried to contact Operation Once in a Lifetime, we received no response from their organization.
Lastly, the VFW is an IRC 501 (c) organization; this means they are a non-profit organization. While they may earn revenue from barbeques, luncheons or dinners, these proceeds often go towards food for the needy, help for public servants, toys for needy children and overall general goodwill throughout the community. We thank you for your time and appreciate your reading. TAS
