More than a dozen members of the board of directors of the National D-Day Memorial have resigned. Published reports say Bob Slaughter, who spearheaded efforts to build the memorial, is among those quitting. While no reason was immediately given, it was revealed earlier this week the Memorial is five MILLION of dollars in debt.
The former director of the National D-Day memorial says his recent resignation was not caused by its financial problems.
Richard Burrow would not talk about the Foundation's budget problem on camera, but he acknowledged the five million dollar deficit could be a source of concern to future donors.
He also cited the cost of last-minute security arrangements to accommodate President Bush and unexpected repairs to the site from storm damage the night before the June 6th dedication.
