Youâ€™ve seen the outrageous case on television and in your newspaper.
VFW National Commander Thomas J. Tradewell, Sr., calls it â€œâ€¦ a travesty at best that borders on obscene.â€
Albert Snyder, grieving father of fallen Marine Lance Corporal Matthew Snyder, has been ordered by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to pay legal costs to Westboro Baptist Church. These costs were incurred when Mr. Snyder sued over the hateful and despicable protest the church waged during his sonâ€™s funeral. Now, the landmark case has moved to the U.S. Supreme Court, and his court costs continue to mount.
This is the ultimate insult!
The VFW is calling on you to sign our Declaration of Support. All signatures will be delivered to Mr. Snyder on Memorial Day with a full Color Guard Ceremony.
Letâ€™s show Mr. Snyder that we stand proudly beside him in his battle to honor the memory of his beloved son.
