Opinion Letters Veterans PAC responds to recent appointment

First let us say to Nat Henry, we honor your service to our country. We respect your opinion on Daylon Plemens hiring for the Macon office VA counselor. We thank and respect her for her service to the VVA members, but many of us veterans believe the disabled veteran who applied for the job earned the right to have it.

Veterans are given extra consideration on all government job applications, but I guess not in Macon County. We believe our county commissioners should have put some effort into checking to see if a veteran had applied, from there no action we guess.

They had no interest in who got the job. One man should not have had the right to decide on the appointment of this very important job.

Many of us veterans can’t understand why the VVA would turn their back on a disabled fellow veteran applying for the position of VA counselor here in Macon County.

But that is the right we all fought for, the right to make a decision of our own free will.

The decision is made, so be it. We wish the lady well in her job, but we will remember the commissioners for their lack of interest in this matter.
