4 Veterans kicked out of home for selling "illegal" cigarettes.

4 Guys from the Vets home in G.R. will be discharged for selling illegal smokes, according to news reports.

Apparently someone was bringing large quantities of smokes obtain from NY State Indian reservation that was tax free, and was distributing them at several locations within Michigan, including the veterans home.

2 guys started the operation of distribution at the home, and 2 more were brought into the operation. 3 of the 4 were actively selling individual packs, and cartons at cost. 1 was storing the inventory in a cabinet in his room.

It appears that the main players were given written directives to quit selling/distributing them both in 2016 and 2017. Yet they continued.

The result was the administration decided that since they would not follow the Homes rules, they would be discharged.

The veterans were told not to discuss this with anyone. Yet they did, and media was contacted.  The story is creating a lot of social input, and displeasure with the fact that once again, the home is kicking out 4 more guys for what ever reason.
