Statement by American Legion National Commander Michael D. Helm on House Agreement to Continue Denver VA Construction

FOR IMMEDIATE RELASE Statement by American Legion National Commander Michael D. Helm on House Agreement to Continue Denver VA Construction:  INDIANAPOLIS (May 21,2015) -   "While I agree with VA Secretary Bob McDonald that the cost overruns and construction delays that have plagued the Denver Replacement Medical Center in Aurora are inexcusable, I am glad to see that the House is not compounding the fiasco by allowing yet another construction delay. Veterans there have waited far too long already to get the facility that they deserve. It is time to move forward.  The House deserves credit for passing a measure today that will allow work to continue for the next few weeks. We call on the Senate to act in kind. Most importantly, lawmakers and the VA need to come to reach a long-term agreement so that the problems of the past do not resurface. The American Legion has a simple message for both the Department of Veterans Affairs and the U.S. Congress: Do your job." -30- Contact: Mar…

LIVINGSTON COUNTY VETERANS TREATMENT FOUNDATION -FUNDRAISING Event May 16, 2015

LIVINGSTON COUNTY VETERANS TREATMENTFOUNDATION
2000 Grand River Annex, Suite 200 Brighton, MI 48114 (810) 227-7777
May 7, 2015
Livingston County Veterans Treatment Foundation can only achieve its goals with the assistance of generous donations from members of our community. Without these donations, serving those in our area would not be possible.  
The Veterans’ Court program is funded by State Grants.  Since the Livingston County’s Veterans’ Treatment Court program started after the 2015 fiscal year grant application deadline, the program has no funds to help with the participants involved.  These funds go for treatment that may not be covered by their VA benefits, classes, assistance with housing, transportation and so on.
Since our organization relies on the generosity of individuals like you, we write to ask you to consider a donation to our cause. All donations are tax deductible and can be made to the Livingston County Veterans’ Treatment Foundation and mailed to the address above.
