Boys State/Girls State "Go Fund Me" Program

Goal is to collect donation in the amount of $15,000.00

Young Americans living in Europe don’t have many of the same opportunities as their counterparts in the United States. Their participation in the Boys State and Girls State programs is contingent on their sponsoring Posts ability to raise the necessary funds to send them from their home in Europe to the United States.

We as the Department of France agreed to support Boys and Girls State and I am not seeing this.

I have waited to see what kind of support we ,as veterans, were going to give in this program. I am disappointed in the results to date. If we do not want to support an issue, don't vote for it. 

I believe everyone can donate $5.00. Most of us give more money out for a raffle or tumbla.

So I ask you, are we going to support Boys/girls state or not.


As a side note, I do not want to hear complains on why this did not make enough monies from those who did not donate. 


The complaint department just opened. I'm listening!
