100th Consecutive Sunday Rally to “Save Our Veterans Land” plus a major Press Conference

Protest Rally / 1:00 – 4:00 PM

Press Conference: 2:30 PM

Major Announcements by the “Old Veterans Guard”

Rebuilding and Transforming This Sacred Land into a “21st Century” Veterans Home

American Military Veterans in their 60s, 70s and 80s from World War II, Korean War, and the Vietnam War, who make up the “Old Veterans Guard,” will be holding their 100th consecutive Sunday Rally to “Save Our Veterans Land” by celebrating it as the “Veterans Grand Rally”

These patriotic, loyal and stalwart Veterans are vehemently opposed to any use of Veterans land that violates the Congressional Act of 1887 and Land Grant Deed of 1888, which states specifically that their sacred land in West Los Angeles is “to be permanently maintained as National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers.

World War II Veterans Dan Overmyer and Steve Palmer have called a press conference for the “Grand Rally” that will unite fellow Veterans from Santa Barbara to San Diego and to the Inland Empire to declare opposition against the chained and padlocked front gates at the entry of the Los Angeles National Veterans Home while 20,000 of their fellow Veterans remain homeless on the dangerous streets of Los Angeles.

Members of the Old Veterans Guard will have major announcements regarding the land abuse and misuse at the National Veterans Home and serious plans to end Veteran homelessness in Los Angeles.

In a recent announcement from the Department of Veterans Affairs, Secretary Eric K. Shinseki proclaimed: “President Obama and I are personally committed to ending homelessness among Veterans within the next five years. Those who have served this nation as Veterans should never find themselves on the streets, living without care and without hope.”

Secretary Shinseki further declared:”The VA will spend $3.2 billion next year to prevent and reduce homelessness among Veterans.”

Local Veterans want a large portion of that money spent at “The Home” as it is both affectionately and reverently called, since this is the largest VA in the nation and LA has a homeless population of Veterans that is larger than some cities.

The Old Veterans Guard will reveal a “Grand Plan” for a “Grand Home” that includes Resident Towers and Dining Halls for homeless Veterans, and a “Grand Service Center” for all Veterans.

All of this is being done in honor of the Grand Army of the Republic which was the first Veterans Organization after the Civil War, and was instrumental in the establishment of the National Veterans Homes all across America.
