Skip to comments.Sign online petition at Change.org (Save the VA Campaign)

HOT SPRINGS An easy way to show your support of the Hot Springs VA is to sign an online petition recently created by Save the VA Public Relations Committee member Justin Gausman.
One way to sign the petition is to simply log on to www.Change.org and enter Hot Springs VA into the Find space found in the top browser bar. Another quicker way to find the link is to go to www.chn.ge/zpuT7J> which will link you directly to the petition.
Gausman said the addition of this new online petition for the Save the VA Campaign allows the local effort to reach a national audience.
Americans, especially veterans, live everywhere - from those within our borders to those abroad including active duty military and international tourists. This allows for word to spread. If we want our campaign to spread nationally, we need to make it relevant to people nationally. Gausman added that this petition will be submitted to the Department of Veterans Affairs, the House & Senate Committees on Veterans Affairs, and Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki on or shortly thereafter the goal date of Independence Day, 2012. Theyre not just names on a website, Gausman said. Every signature has as much weight as a statement on a written petition.

The link below tested okay, but I simply could not make the compressed link work except by copying pasting it into the Address Bar.
Shamelessly bumping my own thread.
We could really use the help...and so can the Vets round about.
We have over 4,000 on Pine Ridge Reservation. Closure means an extra 50 miles each way in any kind of weather for them, as well as everyone else in the service area who uses the Hot Springs facility. That service area includes a large chunk of Nebraska, plus parts of CO & WY, and even parts of Kansas.
It isn’t like there isn’t a facility on the I-90 corridor near Rapid City already...which WON’T be closed.
