President wants everyone but himself to pay more
Topic - Rich Fales
For more than 15 years, Bob Patten passed the little block building near his house - the one with the anti-aircraft gun in the parking lot - without going inside. A self-described typical Takoma Park liberal ("retired peace activist turned bicycle transportation planner"), he'd never had much reason to pay a call on the town's tiny VFW post.
"We've got to remember what the VFW is for," said Rich Fales, a former head of Post 350 and a soon-to-be district commander. "It's for veterans to come in and associate with veterans. I'm happy to see all the interest, but we have to be careful how we do this."
That goes too far, Fales says.
