Editorial: Mismanaged veterans group doesn't taint others - Editorials

Editorial: Mismanaged veterans group doesn't taint others - Editorials: "Perhaps the worst fallout from this scandal is the ripple effect it could have on charitable giving in general, and on giving to veterans assistance organizations in particular. And that would be heartbreaking because of the incredible work so many of these groups do—including efforts right here in the Fredericksburg area.
The Free Lance–Star recently checked back in with retired Marine Sgt. John Peck, a quadruple amputee injured by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan in 2010. He’s pursuing the possibility of a double arm transplant that could help put his life back on track.
In November 2012, Peck moved into a new house in Spotsylvania County built especially for him by the Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation and the Gary Sinise (R.I.S.E.) Foundation. The VA also provided funding for the house, which was built at cost by American Heritage Homes of Spotsylvania."
