More on Veterans
COOLIDGE — Rep. Tom O’Halleran, D-01, visited Coolidge on Sunday to pay his respects to the veteran wall erected at the Artisan Village of Coolidge, and to hear concerns over the treatment of veterans.
The wall is made up of bricks containing the name of those from around the area who have served in the military. It was constructed by Coolidge resident Oscar Rodriguez in his front yard, until it was moved to the village back in March.
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Tom O’Halleran cosponsored legislation to protect Arizona veterans by prohibiting a hiring freeze from affecting the Department of Veterans Affairs.
“President Trump’s hiring freeze will limit the work our VA hospitals and clinics are doing for veterans in Arizona, and it will only further extend wait times that they cannot bear,” said Rep. O’Halleran. “While it is essential for us to have a discussion on reining in federal spending, I cannot support a unilateral hiring freeze that does not take into account the lives that will be impacted.”
