Local Boy Scouts Accused of Being Too 'Pro-War'

My Son, albeit FOX NEWS got his last name wrong !! O'Connor NOT O'Connell !!

Patrick and his troop were collecting donations to send care packages to the troops in Iraq. Whether you are for or against the War, the troops are made up of our son's and daughters our fathers and mother and our friends. Those people are there because it is their job to be there. Whether we agree with the policies of our government is not the point, here we are heading toward the holiday season and these troops are in harms way and far from their families and some woman named..MARSHA WEINERMAN, from the "Republic of Cambridge" decides that the collections are not appropriate and kicks the Boy Scouts out !! She said the donation boxes were not approved...

Hhmm What's This Marsha?? !!

That was an announcement from the City Of Cambridge Website

Looks like someone approved it!!

I took a screen shot just in case it mysteriously disappears.

Patrick with his Grandfather, a Vietnam Vet, Me to his right and my Granddaughter Raine whose dad was wounded by a roadside bomb while serving in Iraq!

We will all be home for Thanksgiving and Christmas but many families will not!

Donations may be sent to:

Boy Scouts Of America
Troop 45
Po Box 38-1241
Cambridge MA 02238
