Kent State University 50th commemoration

Our Post has been asked to comment on Jane Fonda coming to Kent State in May. We are the North Olmsted Veterans of Foreign Wars. We are proud of what we have done for veterans. We are proud of what we continue to do for veterans. Once again, we will not engage in "angry mob" politics. If Jane Fonda would like to donate her $83,000 to our post, we could definitely put it to good use.
