I am so pissed right now, I could scream !!!!! Of all the Lame brain acts to do, this one takes the
cake. And These are supposed to be medical professionals. Wow, I would not want them to operate
on a pet monkey I don't have. Don't they consider anything sacred anymore. I sure hope it isn't the
original CMOH that is missing. The questions I have are, When did this return of items take place?
Has anyone contacted Terry to confirm he received some memorbilia items from the San Antonio
Hospital ?. Apparently, they listed what they kept, but did they list what they supposedly returned?
Did they send it registered so that someone had to sign for these items??? Here Pam was soooo
GENEROUS to donate these items in the first place and then some lame brain administrator decides
to change the display all around. WoW. What idiots. I am sad to say, when Ruxy and I were traveling
through Texas in 2008, we were never close enough to San Antonio to stop and see the hospital
or Audie's memorbilia that was housed there. Now to know that some of it is at this point in time,
missing, that just breaks my heart because some day I had planned to get to San Antonio and see
the hospital and the statue and these items. What a Bummer, and soooo disrespectful of Audie's
Memory. Sorry I am ranting. Mr. Phillips, if there is anything I can do to help you in your quest ,
please don't hesitate to contact me. Cordially, Shirley Jean. And I do have one other thought.
There are members on this board who have been associated with AMRF for a long long time and
also was in attendance at the opening and dedication of the hospital, would any of them maybe have some video of the original Audie Murphy Room, that would give visual evidence to what was
original there in the display? They say one picture is worth a thousand words, and in that way,
we maybe able to have visual proof of items that MAY now be missing. Just a thought folks.
Again Sincerely, Shirley Jean.
The returns started some 4-6 months ago and everything was sent via Registered Mail. It was signed for so Terry has possession now.
As to photographic evidence, I have an inventory that details the items that Pam sent to the hospital. The inventory was conducted by the hospital some years ago so there is no doubt as to what was there. All total 162 items.
Later today I will post the text of my letter to members of Congress, VA, etc. It is rather long but very detailed and I thought well-written.
If you have any desire to read through it, please do so. Thanks
