For Immediate Release


DENVER, CO – December 11, 2014 – Subject: Aurora American Legion Posts Protesting VA’s Incompetence!

The members of Aurora Paul C. Beck American Legion Post 23 are sick and tired of being lied to, ignored, and made into second class citizens by the leadership of the Veterans Affairs Administration.

This court decision against the VA’s mishandling of the design of the hospital, which has become a total scandal has now broke the camel’s back – bringing out the JUST BUILD THE DAMN THING signs and shovels carried by the members of The American Legion, lead by The Action Post – Post 23 – along Colfax Avenue in front of the empty construction site, in protest to this contractual farce, on Saturday, December 13, 2014, at 1:00 pm.

The American Legion, Department of Colorado is calling out all veterans to support this protest – let’s get the VA out of the building business and back to doing what they do best, providing medical care to veterans. Let’s get this THING BUILD!!!!!

A design that has grown from a basic hospital into a Taj Mahal, mismanagement of funds, arrogant attitudes by the VA’s head of construction and the Design Team has been allowed to plague not only the Aurora VA Replacement Hospital but three more that are under construction

The VA is trying to be builders instead of doing what they normally do best, medicine. Maybe, there needs to be senior leader heads rolling down the street that has in anyway caused this stuff to happen.

The ones suffering, the ones who are getting the short end of the stick, well, they are veterans of course, dying by the thousands daily, they should be cared for in this new hospital, but will never see it. Does anyone care??? If you do join us!
