Sounds like a slap in the face and an insult the the veterans, mysely one. The board voting on this has little in respect for those who have gone before them and givin sacrafice to this land. Maybe they should go drop in a combat zone and would have a better understanding of what they so easily voted to push off to another spot.

I appreciate the outstanding sacrifice that was made by the veterans and agree that they deserve a memorial in their honor, but I think the relocation is a great compromise. A well has to be placed in a specific location because of certain requirements, but the location for a memorial is more flexible.

This is nothing new. The same people that have made sacrifices for US before are making them again. Make the monument bigger and then go shake THE HAND OF A VETERAN AND TELL THEM THANKS FOR EVERYTHING.

What this article doesn't mention is that the members of VFW Post 7999 requested that Guilford County offset the additional costs that will be incurred building on the new site. Northwest Guilford VFW Post 7999 has graciously stepped aside to allow the school system to test the site located in the grove of trees.
