Jeanne Flanigan, an art teacher and advocate for veterans, reports:
I went to the State Capitol today, with some of the veterans from the Norman Veterans Center, to lobby for no cuts to veterans’ centers and hospitals in Oklahoma. In recent years their budget has been cut 14%, and it looks bad for this year. This means that they won’t have enough nurses and others to help them in their most [critical] time of need. We ran into Sen. Al McAffrey just after he’d been sworn in! Of course he’ll support the veterans!
