Grand Rapids Home for Veterans: Disgracefull refusing to take veterans to Memorial.

April 11th, 2012, 11:21pm.

A unique opportunity to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice during the Vietnam War is coming April 14 and 15 to American Legion Neal Fonger Post 179 in Walker.

The Michigan Vietnam Memorial Wall, a traveling exhibit that contains the more than 2,600 names of the men and women from Michigan who died during the war.

The wall is five panels engraved with the names of the fallen soldiers, said American Legion member and Navy veteran Catherine Buckley, who is organizing the event.

As of the time of this writing, not ONE bus from the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans has been scheduled to take veterans to go see the memorial, despite inquires. The home is "blowing smoke up our tails" as one person said, after they inquired about transportation for their dad who is currently living at the home.

The Home, administered by Acting Administrator, (616) 364-5344, Sara Dunne has failed to even make an attempt to provide once in a life time transportation to even some of the veterans to go see this historical event.

If you read this, please contact the home and demand they provide transportation for the veterans.

The home has disgraced us. And this coming from an administrator that says she loves the veterans and cares about them, while she is hoping to be appointed permanent administrator, despite a growing number of peoples concern over the way she has ran the place over the last year.
