Approximately 500 veterans, their wives and/or husbands, showed in support of turning the 14-year old Harriman Hospital into a VA hospital. With chants of "VA all the way!", the audience shouted their desire to move forward in gaining Washington's support for a VA hospital that would serve 85,000 regional veterans.
The City of Harriman has already approved a resolution to sell the hospital building to the VA for $1.00! So, not having the money should be a non-issue.
I decided not to take photos of the politicians, all of whom voiced their support, that showed up in support, because it was all about "us" veterans. It's also up to "us" to gather the needed petition signatures to push the move "all the way to the VA"!
Click on this photo of the petition, print it off, sign it, and fill up the sheet with other names, and mail it to the address on the form.
Best of luck to us all! All the way to the VA!
