For Immediate Release
Soldiers' Angels - Call to Action for Community Support for the Veterans Clinics and Hospitals Across America
Pasadena, CA March 5 2007-The Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) clinics and hospitals located in many communities across the nation provide medical services to combat veterans. These facilities are an important resource for veterans returning from the Global War on Terror and their families. Soldiers' Angels encourages the nation to stand up and support the needs for improvements for the facilities as our veterans deserve to have the best medical care available for them.
Of the 25 million veterans currently alive, nearly three of every four served during a war or an official period of hostility. About a quarter of the nation's population, approximately 70 million people are potentially eligible for VA benefits and services because they are veterans, family members or survivors of veterans.
Recent reports highlight many areas of concern in the repair needs of facilities and care that our combat veterans are receiving. This may appear only to be a government issue, but as citizens we should prepare to take roles in assisting the hospitals and clinics in areas of need, such as volunteering or donating needed product to make the lives of our combat veterans more comfortable.
To locate a VA hospital or clinic near you please visit www.va.gov or contact 1-800-827-1000.
Soldiers' Angels is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the support of the brave men and women deployed in support of the War on Terror in Iraq, Afghanistan and wherever we fly the flag of the United States of America.
