A CALL TO ACTION
YOUR PRESENCE IS HEREBY REQUESTED!

VETERANS PUBLIC RALLY - IV
Sunday, April 13th - 1:00 - 4:00 PM

"Save Our Veterans Home"
 

National Veterans Home 
N/E Corner - Wilshire and San Vicente Boulevards
BRENTWOOD

WHY:  To stop the land giveaway of Veterans' hallowed property and demand government's full compliance and enforcement of the Land Grant Deed of 1888.

     "SAVE OUR VETERANS HOME" - This land was specifically Deeded 120 years ago to be permanently maintained as a National Home for America's Military Veterans.   Our government must cancel the no-bid, behind-the-scenes land-grab of 16 acres of Veterans hallowed property that was given away rent-free for a public community park. This parcel of land is estimated to be worth nearly one billion dollars, yet Veterans receive absolutely nothing while their healthcare services are seriously underfunded and woefully inadequate.

     Veterans Park Conservancy, a special interest activist group has bigger plans to take control of Veterans land and build a "central park west" for the general public.  This National Home is a place of historic quietude for Veterans rehabilitation and convalescence and there must never be any consideration for a noisy public community park of any kind whatsoever.     There is absolutely nothing in the Deed of 1888 that allows anyone to designate any land for a public park, open space, commercial use, or any other purpose whatsoever, other than for the direct benefit of America's Military Veterans. America's citizenry must demand government's enforcement of the Deed just as it was generously Granted on March 3, 1888: “To be permanently maintained as a National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers.”

WHERE:  The Rally will be held at the Front Gate and on the Sidewalks outside of the National Veterans Home, situated at the Northeast Corner of Wilshire and San Vicente Boulevards in Brentwood. (Just north of Federal Avenue)

WHEN:  Sundays' Rally: April 13th - From 1:00 - 4:00 PM

WHO:  Everyone that supports America's Military Veterans and their National Veterans' Home.

     THANKS to all who attended Sunday's Rally, and a special thanks to Steve Palmer, an 85 year-old World War II wheelchair Veteran who drove from Panorama City in the SF Valley to "Save Our Veterans Home."  Two 80-year old Korean War Veterans, Dick Briethaupt and Rich Soto, drove from Northridge to support the cause. Danny Cano, a combat Veteran of the Vietnam War and Secretary of "Citizens For Veterans Rights" has been a long-time advocate and loyal supporter to "Save the Home."  And Army Chaplain James Key drove 160 miles from Fort Irwin, CA., to attend Sunday's Rally.  Thanks to all loyal supporters!
