My name is Tommy Tabor from Schriever, LA. I was the founder of VVnW LA Post # 4. I ran our post according to Roberts Rules of Order and VVnW Bylaws. My wife and I took Loy Smith and his wife to the VVnW Convention. ( By the way, VVnW no longer have conventions. I guess, they DON"T want to here from the membership, as for as complaints and input.) Loy Smith was all excited, when We walked into the convention room and Nansy Verespy was at the podium. She said, hold it, Louisiana has arrived. He wanted to know why she said that. I replied, I guess they are proud of the way I command LA Post # 4. We are respected, here and in Louisiana. Loy replied, that's great. The VVnW, National Board of Directors came down for the Mardi Gras Celebrations. I met Peter and Nancy at the motel and brought them a King Cake and a quart of milk. This is a tradition to welcome newcomers to Mardi Gras. I am a 100% Service Connected Veteran who suffers from P.T.S.D. I do not like crowded places. I could not go to some of the places they wanted to visit. Along with that, I was sick. I ask Loy and his wife to take them around and see the sites. The thing that amased me was, Loy Smith told me how Peter and Nancy had such a good time. With Peter's P.T.S.D. Disability, it's hard to see him in those crouded places. I had been looking and begging to get a float so the board members could participate in the Mardi Gras Festivities. This was something they never did or would ever do again. The post, paid $ 750.00 and VVnW National paid $ 750.00 to purchase the float. I did everthing I could to see that the National Board had a great time. I begged again from the City of Thibodaux and the Maintance Dept. for a place to store the float. The float was used again the next year, because Nancy and Peter were coming back. After this parade the float was left in Loy Smith's yard to rot away. Nancy, Peter and I had words and things went to hell in a bread basket. Nancy and Peter would come down and visit Loy and no word to me they were coming. Loy Smith, Johnny Guillot and others got together to discuss the upcoming election. needless to say I was replaced at the very questionable election where a group took over the election with Johnny Guillot leading the group. I was replaced by Loy Smith as post commander. I went to national for help and was told the election was done according to VVnW Bylaws, as was told to Nancy by Johnny Guillot. I did get upset when a tent was delivered to my business for VVnW Post # 4. We had discussed this tent, but the floor was against it. This was just a discussion. The board took it on themselves to purchase the tent. I ask to see the minutes and listen to the tape recording of the meeting that gave them the right to purchase the tent.The secretary forgot those minutes and his grandkids taped over the tape of that perticular meeting. Now was strange. I understand, Johnny Guillot complained to national and I was suspended. Loy Smith was appointed to the National Board as Beacon House Committee Chairman, and I was Terminated Permanently. You can check out the letters and envelopes that was sent to me by VVnW National. Was this suspension and termination from the board " or " from the nation commamder herself ? Please go to http://www.concerned-vets-la.org/termination_letter . You can read and see what REALY HAPPENED. Thank you for your time and troubles you took out of your busy day to see why I was terminated. Question is; Are you next and how ?
