Opinion: Veterans' charities need scrutiny
from The Washington Post
Former Senate majority leader and a veteran awarded two Purple Hearts and the Bronze Star for his Army service in World War II Bob Dole writes: "Memorial Day evokes a jumble of emotions: pride in military service mingled with grief over the human toll exacted by war, and profound gratitude for whatever it is in the American character that inspires heroes in every generation to risk everything for the country they love more than life itself. Over the years their civilian brethren have expressed appreciation, however imperfectly, through their generous support of charities assisting veterans, especially those wounded in body or spirit."
