Fellow Veterans and Friends of Veterans:

Attached is an updated summary of the incredible and incredulous hijacking of a recent public Veterans meeting by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Los Angeles Veterans Advisory Commission so that two private non-profit developers could hijack seven acres of Veterans property and two medical buildings at the Sepulveda VA ... for a $1 a year for 75 years.

The eight Commissioners who voted for this giveaway of Veterans land are all Veterans, one is a Brigadier General in the U.S. Army Reserve.  The Executive Director who helped orchestrate the hijacking of the meeting that set up the scandalous vote is a retired Colonel of the U.S. Marine Corps.  

This is not only disgraceful and embarrassing, it is traitorous!

Let us not forget that Benedict Arnold was a General who tried to surrender West Point , a strategic military base during the Revolutionary War, but failed.

Today, during the Veterans Revolution, a General has assisted in the surrendering of a strategic Veterans hospital and medical facilities. 

As we all know, the VA surrendered 16 acres of land at the strategic National Veterans Home for a public park, along with other misappropriation of Veterans land.  

This Brigadier General is now the new Commanding General of the Army Reserve Center that is on 10 cares of Veterans land at corner of Wilshrie and Federal, and across the street from the proposed public park.  His Army Reserve command has declared itself to be a "supporter" of Veterans Park Conservancy on their website.   

C.S. Lewis forewarned: "We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst."

Are you going to sit back and watch more Veterans land pillaged and plundered under your watch by the largest Veterans organization in the USA -- the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Veterans need to unite in solidarity and fight back. 

All VOS's need to take immediate action because the American Legion and Disabled American Veterans both had no-nonsense Resolutions opposing the non-profit developers' project, representing the memberships of more than 2.5 million Veterans, yet eight politically appointed Veterans voted against millions of America's Veterans in favor of two private non-profit developers. 

In addition, there were 15 Neighborhood Councils in the San Fernando Valley representing more than 700,000 resident that seriously oppose this conversion of Veterans medical facilities into luxury housing.

While America's Veterans have grown accustomed to the corruption of VA bureaucrats, sleazy politicians, and greedy non-profit special-interest groups in the confiscation of Veterans property at the Veterans Home in West LA VA, it's unforgiving when a few Veterans screw the greater good of the vast majority of Veterans, or any single Veteran for that matter.

While Memorial Day will soon be upon us, we can never forget May 12, 2010.

Read the attached article and demand the resignation of the eight Commissioners and the Executive Director.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

- Cicero

    "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."

-    Thomas Paine
