VA Accountability: a Project of Concerned Veterans for AmericaSalem-News.com
See you on Thursday...for our Country and our Veterans
(MEDFORD) - I am a member of an organization called the Concerned Veterans For America (http://www.
Below this message is a request from the CEO to write a handwritten letter on March 13th to our U.S. Senators and Congressman to ask for their support on the VA Management Accountability Act. I'd like to take that up a notch and form a task force to hand deliver the handwritten letters to the local Medford offices of our representatives. They are not always fully staffed, so we would need to ensure that someone would be there to receive the letters. I propose we rendezvous at 1000 on the 13th, at one of the 3 locations - walk, en masse, from one office to the next, delivering our letters, one at a time, circling back to our origin. The route on 6th St. would take directly past the Mail Tribune offices and be a block or so from KOBI TV. We could ask some of our political candidates to join us for the march - Linthicum, Challstrom and the Jackson County Sheriff hopefuls come immediately to mind.
I can transport at least 5 people, including myself. I'd also like to do a foot recon beforehand of the possible routes, insertion and extraction points, etc. Let me know if there's any interest. I plan to do so myself regardless but would welcome the company. I suppose we'd need some sort of permit if there's enough interest.
Here are the office locations:
Medford, OR, 97501
Phone: (541) 608-9102
14 N. Central Ave., Suite 112
Medford, OR 97501
Suffice it to say, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is worried. News stories of persistent backlogs, destruction of records, and preventable deaths are flooding the airwaves -- and VA is in full-panic mode.
