Wasn't it last Christmas that Target refused to let the Salvation Army ring their bells in front of their stores?
Dick Forrey of the Vietnam Veterans Association wrote.
"Recently we asked the local TARGET store to be a proud
sponsor of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall during our
spring recognition event.
We received the following reply
from the local TARGET management:
" Veterans do not meet our
area of giving. We only donate to the arts, social action
groups, gay & lesbian causes, and education."
So I'm thinking, if the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and
veterans in general, do not meet their donation criteria,
then something is really wrong at this TARGET store. We were
not asking for thousands of dollars, not even hundreds, just
a small sponsorship for a memorial remembrance.
As a follow-up, I E-mailed the TARGET U.S. Corporate
Headquarters and their response was the same.
Then I looked into the company further.
They will not allow
the Marines to collect for 'Toys for Tots' at any of their
stores. And during the recent Iraq deployment, they would
not allow families of employees who were called up for
active duty to continue their insurance coverage while
they were on military service. Then as I dig further,
is a French-owned corporation .
Now, I'm thinking again. If TARGET cannot support American
Veterans, then why should my family and I support their
stores by spending our hard earned America! n dollars!
have their profits sent to France.
Without the American
Vets, where would France be today?
"They, most likely would be speaking German and trading in Deutsch Marks"

Please send this on to everyone you know
to let Target know
we don't need them either !
They are also anti gun, and feel people have no need to own them!
A must read for anyone that uses the internet.
The story is a lie.
In Marine speak, Target is...Good To Go...
God Bless snopes...
This was all over when I was stationed in San Diego. BS. I even worked there for a while and Target was more than happy to offer me a job at the corporate building when I got out. They told me they preferred vets over others due to the problems they have had with "college grads".
This one alone makes them a lame corporation. Some additional research, and will show that Salvation Army is at the top of cost effective charities in the US.
I stand corrected, before I posted the message I should have checked my facts instead of believing what others told me.
