    I have been a supporter of Paralized Veterans of America, 7 Mill Brook Road, Wilton, NH 03086, for the past few years.
    Please tell me if they are a legitimate agency and do they really help our disabled veterans. I feel very proud because I had 3 brothers plus my husband that served in the military and very blessed that none of them were injured. Also I believe I have read that the President or chairman or whomever the head of this charity is either does not receive a salary or receives a reasonable salary. Is this true?
    Thank you, Mrs. Juanita Dick
