Oh Really???

The flier above was posted on the American Legion Post 653's (Terlingua, Texas) bulletin board. This was a month after the protest over the way the legion handled Alex and for that matter other veterans needs. I say a month after, but I didn't see it until the flier was handed to me. That protest was after Alex' death.

I feel it my duty to get the truth out about this BS! First off NO I didn't break the law by going there because I am banned from there over trumped up BULLSHIT charges even though there were plenty of witnesses to dispute those claims. Alex was banned from there a couple of days later. The fliers were handed to me by a woman who is still able to go there.

(1) Yes Alex was given a job there. (First by me because the woman he bought the land from emailed me asking me to watch out for him because he was having a rough time. I gave him a job as bartender.)

(2) The motor home purchased by the commander was NOT for Alex it was purchased because the commander got a good deal on it and planned to use it for his own use later. Alex was charged RENT on it. Alex got help from quiet a few other people including me.

(3) Alex was given Food and Money???

Alex WORKED for his MONEY both as a bar tender and working with other people on his off time.

As for given food? Guess what folks everyone else was to after it was donated to the public at the legion as a food bank and not by the legion. (exception would be food purchased by the legion for pot luck suppers (and a lot of times by the bartenders.) About all of them did that INCLUDING Alex (out of their own pockets.)

Thanks Chuck and Cathy for the groceries that supported this area along with Mike at the Family Crisis Center. And of course the Bar Tenders, Members and customers.

I'll address the rest of the BULLSHIT on that flier on the next blog (With a lot more BS exposer)

OH! BTW Alex was not booted out of the army. He was HONORABLY discharged, but the AHs at the legion keep wanting to defame him.

  1. Has to be the most unprofessional thing I've ever heard come out of that place. I'm at a loss for words...

  3. Alex is now dead and cannot defend himself! It is a sad day when cowardly others post B.S. garbage like that flier - and do not even sign their names to it. ---------------------------------------------- I would like to thank TFFNGUY for his kinder words!------

    3. Gates are strange things! Some are necessary - some are not. What you do on your property - is strictly your own business. But I do admire a man who will stand up for departed souls like Alex - who have been defamed by anonymous others - and can no longer respond to such sorry insults! Cheers!

  4. Cannot believe the AL commander would allow this to be posted. What kind of leader is he ? My legion would never do this.

  5. WOW !, I'm speechless too! I am sure glad you posted this though, as a lot of us wouldn't have seen that or known about it!
    Thanks tffnguy, making it public keeps people accountable!

    1. Al, the person that authored this thinks they can lie their way out of anything. Its actually getting comical in a sick way.

  6. David - thanks for the post. Thanks for your defense of Alex's name. Sounds to me like the AL leadership has no shame to allow such a posting defaming the dead. Their time will come....

    1. Bernie O, we're still playing the waiting game here. Waiting for positive ID of the body and then maybe start finding out what the heck is going on with the investigation???

  7. Better be prepared for a long wait! A friend of mine was arrested by Deputy Hardin last November - and had to spend a night in jail. Then - he bailed himself out for a $10,000 bail bond! And now he and his lawyer - are still waiting on the specific charges of his alleged law infraction. Pretty difficult to defend yourself - when no written charges are available - AFTER SEVEN MONTHS? Hopefully - they will act more swiftly on Alex's investigation - but I would not bet money on that!

  8. rj, things are finally starting to happen about this, but I'm trying to hold off because there are rumors flying everywhere. I want to post the truth not rumors.
