VFW does not endorse any party or candidate

In the Oct 9, 2020, Daily Bee, comments appear to indicate that VFW Post 2453 endorses Heather Scott and what she said at the meeting on the Oct. 8. The VFW is not politically affiliated, nor does it endorse any politician or political party. The VFW Hall was rented by a group that had Heather Scott as their speaker. As a former VFW Post 2453 post commander, senior vice-commander, junior vice-commander and life member of the VFW, I denounce any attempt at affiliating the VFW with said article.

I personally oppose Heather Scott and the rhetorical crap she utters. This person is a divisive individual that pushes her philosophy on everyone, talk about a tyrant.

I am submitting this letter from me, not as a representative of any organization, but as an individual American veteran. I personally endorse Governor Littleā€™s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, and I believe wearing a mask, social distancing, and staying away from others when feeling ill, can help slow down this virus.

In closing, I reiterate, the VFW does not endorse any political candidate or party.
