Hi all,



AARP has Jane Fonda on the cover of the June/July 2016 edition of AARP magazine. We need to write to the editor of AARP, Robert Love, at aarpmagazine@aarp.org to let him know of our displeasure. You can copy and paste the text below, add your name and Branch of Service:



Dear Mr. Love,



I cannot believe you would put the face of a traitor like Jane Fonda on the cover of your magazine. There is nothing she can do that would ever be good considering the number of men who were killed as a result of her “visit” to North Vietnam. It is wonderful she can be in the same shape she was in when she was on a North Vietnam anti-aircraft gun smiling and laughing. It is just a shame many of the American soldiers who were killed as a result of her visit cannot see her today. I am sure she remembers when those prisoners were paraded out in front of her. They were actually elated and had prepared small pieces of paper with their social security numbers on them. The hope was she could let their families back home know they were alive. Instead she handed the papers to their North Vietnamese captors whereupon they were all tortured mercilessly. I don’t believe she stayed around for that show. There are still a lot of Vietnam Vets in this world. Most of us are 65 and up and we do not forget. In fact the motto of the Vietnam Veterans of America is “NEVER FORGET”. We will never forget our fellow Veterans and we will neither forget or forgive Jane “Traitor” Fonda. I have written every Vietnam Vet I know, every Vietnam Veteran organization I can think and every person on this mailing list to let them know what a terrible mistake you have made. I would accept nothing less than an apology printed in your magazine. I am not happy with AARP magazine.



Your name

Branch of Service









Thanks,
