Default Deal with the Legion

Take your gripe to the American Legion. It is their baliwick, not the Morse family's problem.

This is a war memorial. The American Legion is the one who should host it

Your post is insulting to the Morse family. If you do not like how the Morse family is handling everything, no one is forcing you to live here. You could even make money in selling your house as there are always buyers. Not too many places - especially in Florida - could you make money by selling your house. Looks like the Morse family is doing something right, doesn't it?

So.... are we now to assume the American Legion is also anti-military?

Wait, wait, wait. Who do you direct these comments to? Tbugs? The original poster?

I posted that I read that the display would be at American Legion because I read that in the POA Bulletin.

I know that you are disappointed, but not having it here really doesn't mean we residents and frequent posters don't respect, support and honor our veterans.

Nor can I believe that the Morse family doesn't honor, support and respect our veterans. There is much evidence that they do.

It sounds very much like having it here was a HUGE undertaking both in logistics and financially.

Gracie,

The negative comments were directed at the American Legion for backing out of their deal - not at me.

Yes, the POA did say the Legion was going to have the Moving Wall. They now say the lead time was too short. Truth is they could not find enough volunteers among their membership to do the necessary work connected with the project.

Anyhow, it is up to the Morse family to decide what and what not to display on their property.

Enjoy this beautiful Palm Sunday in The Villages to the fullest.

And maybe, during this holy week, find time to say a prayer of thanks to all of those whose names are on that wall, as well as to their families - and to all who served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice.

Default Morse and the veterans wall.

I found this article very interesting . If true very disturbing.
More disturbing, the writer has not taken credit for the article. If you are going to make accusations this serious you should not hide behind an organization, especially a veterans organization.

Yikes, you mean that if anybody takes issue with the developer, they should sell their house and leave???? Love it our leave it????? Wow!!!! I wonder if they would be eligible for political asylum elsewhere.

Talk Host -

I said that if someone did not agree with the Morse family decisions, they are not being forced to stay. I did not suggest that they should move. Why take something out of context?

If I had major problems with the internal workings of a community, I may not choose to live there any longer. It is an individual choice.

I have heard people say if they could move from a certain community or location and not lose money on the sale of their house, it would be a done deal. As I stated in my post, chances are you will make money on the sale of a Villages home.

I am staying very civil in my tone. Please do not take my words and twist them so it would seem like I am an authoritarian.
