It is disappointing and ironic that the Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America would raffle a guitar signed by Ted Nugent to raise money for a veterans music therapy program. Disappointing because Nugent is an outspoken racist who represents the worst traits in American citizens.
Ironic because Nugent has bragged about how he avoided the draft during the Vietnam War. By his own admission, he didn't bath for months, wore the same clothing without washing and soiled his pants in order to present himself in the most undesirable fashion for his pre-induction physical. He dodged the draft while the Vietnam Veterans of America served honorably.
I urge the Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America to rethink the object of their raffle. Choose a donor who represents good and honor. Not a racist draft dodger who has done nothing positive for our country.
