Hello everyone,

Just wanted to keep everyone updated on the progress that we are making with the markers for the Black Confederate soldiers that VA has denied us.  I sent ALL information to Southern Legal Resource Center as suggested by Mr. H. K. Edgerton.  I received a call from Mr. Roger McCredie today.  He just received the information and was going over it.  He is going to also talk with a couple of other people, but is hopeful.

There are several other people that are also helping with this situation.  Any and all help is greatly appreciated.  I believe that if we get the word out how VA is trying to cover this matter up we will win with EVERYONE’S help.

This is not about me, this is about trying to honor these men the way they should be.  They should not be forgotten.

We are hoping to have the dedication later this year in the fall.

I just want to say a big THANK YOU to each and everyone for your support and efforts in this matter.
