I am donating $100 today

Mikey,

Here’s a photo of my father’s grave in the VA cemetery in (city and state withheld).  I am fairly confident he would not approve of a couple of swastika’s on either side of his location.  I know I don’t, and my deceased mother and grandfather probably wouldn’t.  My grandfather was a WW I veteran and served in France and ran the selective service region in (state withheld) in WW II.  If he knew about this, all holy hell would break loose and it would be a short amount of time until the markers would be gone.  This sort of symbolism matters.  War is not a game where when it’s over we all get together and have a couple of beers and shake hands.

So now, the morons are thrust into the position of defending a fucking swastika in a VA cemetery.  All Americans have a reason for outrage with this, especially with Memorial Day coming up.  I simply cannot imagine a greater final insult to those American soldiers and their families.

Rather than just bloviating, with the intention it will help you in this cause, I am donating $100 today.  Best of luck to you, and thank you.
