First thing this morning I got this email from Jan Scruggs, CEO of the Vietnam Memorial Wall. He was asking that anyone concerned about an ad depicting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial but in reality listing the names of shops at Tyson’s Corner please contact a reporter at the Washington Examiner.
I sent off a note as did as did Marsh Carter, Chairman of the NY Stock Exchange and a two-tour Vietnam veteran. Carter sent me a note as soon as he contacted the reporter at the Examiner.
I asked many of you to contact the Examiner as well. Not because they were responsible for the ad but because they have the power to put the screws to the folks who did. And that’s exactly what happened. Thank you for writing those notes.
Here’s the follow-up article by the Examiner. Now would you please write a note and thank Michael for doing his job well and for bringing the appropriate attention to this poorly-contrived and executed ad?
