There may be some confusion as to Beaufort County's participation in the funding of the most worthyLt. Dan Weekend, which brings injured veterans to Beaufort for a four-day weekend.
With respect to this September's event, the county, having previously contributed $10,000, was assured that it was now fully funded, and if needed, the county administration is prepared to make a contribution from the general fund.
At issue is funding for next year. Rather than rushing to a decision on an arbitrary amount, it is prudent (since time is not of the essence) to consider an appropriate amount in due course for next year.
I trust that our community, particularly our veterans, our wounded warriors and Gary Sinise recognize that County Council fully supports this most precious cause.
