Postcard Protest Seeking to Keep Clinton From Tributes to Military

May 04, 1993| From the Washington Post

WASHINGTON — President Clinton's avoidance of military service during the Vietnam War continues to haunt him, triggering a postcard protest to thwart any plans he might make to visit either the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery or the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

A White House official Monday said the protest, engineered by a retired North Carolina lawyer and two former Vietnam veterans, has led to between 10,000 and 15,000 postcards being mailed to White House. Dee Dee Myers, White House press secretary, however, said the number was far lower, about 600.

Clinton has announced no plans to attend memorial services at either the memorial or cemetery.
