Some local San Diego veterans and VA Hospital nurses will rally Friday against the proposed privatization of VA health care.

Members of the San Diego Veterans For Peace, accompanied by VA nurses and several veterans who receive VA health care at the La Jolla Veterans Hospital, will be holding a joint rally outside of the La Jolla Veterans Hospital, 3350 La Jolla Village Drive, SD, CA  92161 on Friday, April 13th, 2018 from Noon to 1:30 PM.

They intend to express their combined strong opposition to proposed privatization of many areas of veterans health care. They issued this statement:

The President, members of his cabinet, and members of congress have proposed the privatization of health care for veterans now receiving their healthcare through the VA system.  As veterans and nurses, who both receive and provide the often unique and special care that veterans require, we fear that the proposed privatization to “for-profit” companies will both diminish the quality of care available to veterans while increasing the cost to the tax payers for this important care.

For further information about the rally or to arrange interviews, please contact USMC Veteran Jim Brown at 760-419-8650 or at
