The father is either a Veteran himself or actually understands the Military and Veterans of real communities, as so many who volunteer at VA facilities, without whom most facilities wouldn't operate as well as they do. Or organize give to and volunteer for organizations to help at least some of the few who've served them, especially from our, flag waving poser patriotic, wars. For Veterans that Military Structure and concern, duty too, for their Brothers and Sisters doesn't leave most once Service and Sacrifice to the Country is over!
"Where is this guy? You lead from the front, good or bad, you don't hide," Fred Kane said. "I don't understand how an organization that has many veterans who value honor and service and chain of command can be led by a guy like that."
3 March 2016 - Earlier this year, a CBS News investigation found the Wounded Warrior Project spends far less of its donations on veterans compared to others. And if we were surprised, so were some major donors.
With two sons serving in Iraq, raising money for Wounded Warrior Project was more than a cause for Fred and Dianne Kane. It was a calling.
Since 2009, the Kane's charity Tee-off for a Cause raised $325,000 for WWP through golf tournaments in the Carolinas. WWP even honored Fred Kane with an award for being a VIP donor.
But allegations that only a little over half of donations went to help wounded vets came as a blow.
"Hearing that there was this waste of money, donor dollars that should have been going to servicemen and women that were injured, and that it was spent on their having a good time -- it's a real disappointment," Dianne Kane told CBS News. read more>>>
"I feel like I am representing all these people who have donated over the years, all these seniors over 65 sending $19 month, all these people on fixed incomes. If no one is going to talk about this right now and it has to be me, then it has to be me," Fred Kane said.
And how much of this, presidential candidate poser patriotism, is 'actually' helping Veterans and not just as bottom line for compensation and more of the executives running the orgs, or, grifter, Trump himself:
After all the Trump spoke the Conservative, i.e. Country served, ideology not long ago:
The Veterans Administration is 'Not' Socialized anything! It's the People Served Responsibility and to uphold their Oath to the few who serve and served them, who've taken and honored the oath they take to the Country and People of Served!!
Are these types of organizations needed, most certainly and not only as to Veterans.
There are plenty who actually care and are not Poser Patriots with FOX speak of words and symbols only!
But orgs that operate with the conservative, reagan, capitalist corporate ideology, care about bottom line only, helping only 'some', that's the key word, in hopes it pulls the public heart strings to donate more.
If media air time was donated! If the infamous used in ads were uncompensated! If the activities organized had mostly, or all, donated time by volunteers, donated merchandise or goods needed for the success of the activity and funds raised by went mostly to the targeted recipients!
Then uses that 'more' to build exec suite compensations to corporate levels and spend lavishly on write offs for these 'not for profits' and only really care about themselves and their statures. National Veterans orgs. have been doing same for years, conservative mentality at top. Their game is up as membership falls. They also exist to help in attacking the peoples responsibility, with their direct government representatives, the employee's and agency of the Veterans Administration. Causing the oft repeated media hyped 'scandals' as nothing was done previously, by congress and state legislators, and what little legislation that was passed was done so 'unfunded' and used for later attack 'scandals'!
Many of these orgs are small, and work mostly with no fanfare and little recognition, like actually in this present Government and the Executive Branches Cabinet and the First and Second ladies of, fighting for donations and caring contributions. And those running know they can only help a few. And even for those few there are many ways the dedicated can help, outside of the peoples responsibility the VA. They are also not a main source of income for the executives or organizers of. Done on a part time basis because a need is seen and dedication is instilled. If they are successful and grow the principles look only at an honest and fair compensation for the hard work they perform to keep them that way, a tiny fraction of any money raised, banking rest and used to continue helping the few and adding to those numbers!
