RE: Article/Letter in the US LST Association News Paper (May-June 2008)
The Ad Hoc committee is trying to find out if some things may have been done out of order by the US LST Association. It appears the LST Memorial board of directors has seen fit to find someone guilty before all of the facts are brought in by that committee.
If any organization has ever cut off their nose to spite their face (or trying to save face), itís the USS LST 325 SHIP Memorial board of directors with the recent cancellation of the membership of the President of the US LST Association. How can you pick one member out of a Board of Directors group and cancel his/her Memorial Membership and not include all the other board of director members who have supported things you didnít like or who didnít support things you wanted them to support? Was canceling all of the past and present US LST Association board members considered as well? From what Iíve heard the votes by the US LST Association board members against the LST Memorial requests were pretty much unanimous
Who will be next to be kicked off the Memorial Membership rolls. Does writing an opinion like this constitute grounds for it?
Now Iím sure if there is a rebuttal concerning my comments they will include a list of all the lies they (USLST) said or supposedly said or printed. Surely the actions of the board can be justified, or can they?
