Hey, let's get some good reporting here. The last line says Danny Nelson said the quote but in the video, the last line said is by a woman.
Just try to get the facts straight.

I was interviewed for this article, and would like to make the following corrections. First, it's NORTHWEST GUILFORD MEMORIAL VFW POST 7999 (informally known as Northwest Guilford Post 7999), not Summerfield VFW.
Second, the town of Summerfield did not force the post to move to the site east of the parking lost. The Guilford County School System popped up just a few days before the post was to sign a contract to begin preparations for the monument, and informed the post's monument committee that the system wanted to drill a test well on the original site. Because having a viable well was crucial to Summerfield Elementary, where the children and grandchildren of many post members have attended, the post voted to surrender the site with the condition that it be given the site east of the parking lot. Danny Nelson addressed the GCS board in early April to explain the fact that accommodating the GCS request resulted in $10K additional expenses. To date, GCS has not made any official response regarding whether or not they plan to compensate the post for these expenses.
The post has a blog at http://vfw7999.blogspot.com/ .
Tax-deductible donations can be made at any Bank of Oak Ridge; just inform the teller that you want to donate to VFW 7999's monument fund. Checks can be mailed to P.O. Box 684, Summerfield, N.C., 27358; email: [email protected] com. The post is also on Facebook. Look for Northwest Guilford VFW 7999.
