A License Plate for a Good Cause

The Roanoke Times has this report about the Bedford American Legion's efforts to approve a specialty plate commemorating D-Day and raising money for the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford.

I've said in this space many times before that I don't really like all the specialty plates we have in Virginia. I think there are way, way too many of them and most of them are honestly pretty dumb. For gosh sakes, just buy a bumper sticker people.

However, if there are 350 bowling enthusaists in the Commonwealth who want to put that on their car, we sure as heck should be able to find 350 people willing to show support for our veterans who fought and died to protect this nation in perhaps its greatest hour of need. For all the silly things people put on their cars, couldn't we just once contribute to a cause that is actually worthwhile?

I encourage you, if you know someone who might be willing to help with this effort, please contact the American Legion, Board Canady Post 54, P.O. Box 882, Bedford, VA 24523.
