Projects that use veterans funding are worthwhile
To the editor:
The article appearing in Friday's newspaper regarding the Missouri Veterans Commission Capital Improvements Trust Fund omitted part of my comments, which results in an impression that is not completely accurate. I did state that the fund was being depleted faster than anticipated due to new demands being placed upon it. While I also said that many of these demands were due to legislative initiatives, I added that the commission considered them to be worthwhile undertakings and that the commission had not opposed them. I believe that this final comment needs to be considered to complete the picture.
