Bad publicity could kill veteran museum

Joe Cantafio has served our country for many years, entertaining our troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan and Kuwait with his group. He is not a con man but believes in what he does for the good of the service.

He started back in the 60s with Dale Shannon. He served as music director for Dick Clark's "American Bandstand". He has been our emcee for the past three years for Veterans Week, where all the money went for the troops and their families.

Joe cares about our veterans and has shown it in many ways. He was picked as CEO of this tremendous project, working with admirals and generals. He even got Jennifer Lopez working on the board too and invited Susan DeLaurentis who is a director for Paramount Pictures who was starting "Operation Hollywood" to help the Project.

If you think raising $1 billion for this museum is easy, you try it. Joe has been outstanding in everything he has ever done.

I am mad when people start picking on a man who was asked to do a job and he is trying to do it. But with bad publicity this project could be finished. You media people always pick on someone who has done more for his country, than anyone that tries to get publicity off hurting a project.

If the media would concentrate on someone like the administration that is destroying our country. I call many states and the companies are folding or can't make it because of the large taxes. It's greed by politicians who are killing this country.

And find out where the president was born it wasn't in Hawaii, try Kenya and you might be right. That's what a good media is supposed to do.
