The picture above is a copy of his discharge papers form the facility!
The VMFA has removed the Confederate flags from the chapel ! And I am informed this is a violation of VA State law.
But law or no law it's wrong to do so !
So given my family connection to the chapel and the RE Lee camp I do have a legitimate interest in what happens there.
I have on one occasion joined the Flaggers to protest this action. However my work prevents me from joining them as much as I would like.
So to thank the folks who carry the colors I made some ribbons for them. Just my way of saying thanks, and staying involved!
Well wouldn't ya know it, some Yankee bloggers have taken a cheap shot at this action.
My question to them is " What's it to you?" No tax dollars were spent I made them at my cost and send them for free to the Flaggers. Why do I have to be a "Nut" to do what I have done?
But as always anything Confederate is open to attack by folks who have nothing better to do!
Hey fellas get a life ! Promote your heritage, quit knocking mine! What I am doing doesn't cost you a cent. And it sure as Hell is not spreading a lie or hate!
So if you will please just tell me why it offends you I would appreciate it!
