Dear Sir
 
I would like to thank MRFF in quickly responding to the request to assist the veterans of New Hampshire with regards to a religious display at our local Manchester, NH VA hospital.  Having served with many fellow Service Members for many years, we all understand and respect each other with regards to their religious preference even if they do not have one.  Being of the Christian faith, I understand that not everyone believes the same as I do and would not want to push my faith on them nor visa versa.  When I noticed the Bible on the POW/MIA table, I knew this would be offensive to some of my fellow Service Members.
 
Contacting the MRFF was easy yet I was a little concerned about keeping my identity private.  Mikey Weinstein and his staff were discreet and professional in addressing my concern.  I was amazed that in less than a day, the issue had been quickly solved for the benefit of all Service Members who utilize the Manchester VA.  And, the officials at the Manchester VA were also responsive in the inquiry by MRFF which shows the strength and respect MRFF has gained in our society.

    This Air Force Veteran real Brave and Proud ? State name and speak on behalf of self and perhaps others in NH, no reason to hide ! The Bible discussed in this Case was one that an ex POW had why held Prisoner. It was used by ALL as a Symbol Of Hope, Freedom, Family, lifeand Strength..just happened to be a Bible. He was with Christian, Jew, Atheist and other..They were Together as One ! This Air Force Gent, Organization And others miss the point or on one track..Anger becuse Of Their History !
    We here in N.H. The Majotity are going to see To it that the Bible is returned to that Missing Man Table because it’s the right thing to do. Yes, you may fight it and miss the point sand look at the Religious factor only ..Choice! We chose to suppor the few POW’s we have left and their feelings of Yrust in each oth and Hope to Survive..Simple ! We are All Brothers here as this Air Force Veteran And Others Should realize. Many Groups but we stand as one !
