GI looks to reverse decision on Veterans Home|
On Friday, Gov. Dave Heineman announced that Kearney had been chosen as the site of the new Central Nebraska Veterans home. He hoped for the tri-cities would be supportive. The decision is not sitting well with Grand Island mayor Jay Vavricek. The Grand Island mayor’s advisory council is standing behind the Home for our Heroes Committee’s efforts to keep the Grand Island Veterans home in Grand Island. The mayor’s advisory council recommended that the City of Grand Island see what could be done to reverse the decision to move the state veteran’s home to Kearney.
