A group called Friends of Law Enforcement Supporting Our Veterans is trying to raise the $10,000 to replace the statue in the Greenville Town Common where part of it was stolen.

The group is selling raffle tickets to win a pig pickin for 40 people that will be catered by sheriff elect Neil Elks.

Tickets can be purchased at the following locations: M & K Record Researches, Inc. 3219 Landmark Street, Suite 1B, Wallace Technologies, Inc. 2050 Eastgate Drive, Suite A, or call 252-752-9467.

The winner will be announced on Veterans Day, November 11th, at the Greenville Town Common.

    Your comment was very interesting to me. I personally think the community and our local government, who spends money where they WANT to spend money -- and I promise it is not to veterans, should contribute to the statue.

    Who does something like that? As a military member from Greenville NC I am astounded that people would do that. Goes to show you some people have respect fr what we do and some people don't. How about we find that guy and let him take the place of our local boys who have died in this war. Geez.

    Amazing. Where is the VFW and the American Legion? Apparently, if they cannot get a cut, they will not contribute. Nothing but flag waving lobby groups.

    I would also like to help. I will give ALL profits that are made through sales to this organization to assist them to getting to their goal. If you would like to help out you can go to http://tinacox.avonrepresentative.com/online_event/view.php and use code VETERANMEMORIAL when checking out so that I can track what profits will belong to the organization. Thanks.
