I've liked the recent improvements to the Menlo Park VA facility. This is a much-needed addition in support of our veterans.

I am so glad Veterans will be helped with this development. Their sacrifice is deserving of so much more.

This new institution WILL NOT BE FOR homeless veterans; not one veteran moving into the facility will have spent the night before on the streets.

Homeless veterans WILL NOT BE ALLOWED to move into this facility! Veterans moving in will VA treatment program attendees, mandated to be active participants in the 12-Step religious AA/NA cult, who already get SSA/SSDI/SSI/VA disability income supports and have a HUD-VASH housing voucher. 99% of the homeless veterans do not have disability income or HUD-VASH vouchers and NEVER WILL HAVE THOSE!
