ROME- The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs made a stop in Rome. This is one of four times a year the department makes a stop to address their veterans concerns. On Friday afternoon, the Syracuse bureau stopped and spoke with every veteran present on what they liked and did not like about the VA.
“The new Whole Health for Life program seems great,” said Dennis Thorp, Army veteran.
The Whole Health for Life program was revealed in the town hall on Friday. According to Robert McLean Public Affairs Officer of the Syracuse VA Medical Center, this program is designed to help every veteran live a happier and healthier life.
“It’s about the veterans connecting with our staff on a personal level to help out their whole life situation,” said McLean.
Along with this program, there are also improvements which are being made. Among them are new sidewalks, benches, and the facade of the building.
