Caller spoke to me like a long lost friend and was rather patronizing. He said he represents the MN Veterans of Foreign Wars, which if true, is a wonderful non-profit organization.
Unfortunately, like so many other organizations with noble and honorable missions (FOP, State Patrol, Special Olympics, Lupus, etc.), they employ dishonorable fund-raising methods and discredit themselves as well as their causes.
I intend to contact the MN VFW Department Headquarters at 651-291-1757
or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org to have my name and number removed from their calling list.
