Billboards blast Minneapolis VA as part of national campaign to 'shame change'
Frustrated by what he sees as the inaction and deception of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, an Indiana Vietnam veteran has begun a personal campaign to bring his complaints to light, paying for critical billboards across the country near VA facilities.
The billboards are explicit. They say “VA is LYING. Veterans are DYING.”
The campaign came to Minneapolis this month, with three such billboards along roads near the Minneapolis Veterans Medical Center. Signs are facing both east and west on Cedar Avenue and on Hwy. 62, near the 34th Avenue exit.
