One of the traveling Vietnam walls made an appearance this weekend in Flora, Mississippi. Appointed US Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith was scheduled to speak at the event on Saturday, October 27 and to lay a wreath at the wall in honor of those who perished. Instead, she blew off the veterans to make an appearance at a “biscuits and jam” event in Union and a chamber of commerce event in Pontotoc.

As if this weren’t bad enough, Hyde-Smith didn’t even bother to notify the event’s organizers that she would not be attending.
