American Legion Checks Out Grand Junction VA Medical Center
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- The state's top representatives from the world's largest veterans group are making their rounds throughout Colorado, and on Friday night they checked out the Grand Junction VA Medical Center.
Once a year the American Legion tours Colorado visiting all of the state veteran homes, as well as the Grand Junction VA Medical Center and the Denver VA.
The group's goal is to make sure our veterans receive the proper care after making the ultimate sacrifice; risking their lives for our freedom.
Through this annual tour, the group is able to hear from the medical center on any glitches they are facing, and relay their issues to headquarters.
"What we learn out in the field, we take back to Washington, and we share with Congress, we share with the President, we share with the sector of the VA. Because they don't always get outside the beltway, so they need that input," explained Tom Brock, American Legion.
The American Legion was founded in 1919.
The group praises the Grand Junction center for its honesty and diligence in caring for local veterans.
