SAVE OUR BARSTOW VETS!

We are here to stop Gavin Newsom and his administration from closing the Barstow, California Veterans Home.

STORY ABOUT US

Our mission is to project a united, team and community effort to protect the displacement of veterans who reside in the home, as they protected us in conflicts from as far back as WWII, Korea, Vietnam and other areas of service. And now they need our help to reverse proposed state budget cuts that will close the facility indefinitely.

We are veterans, spouses, activists, community leaders and members of a united community. But most of all, we are patriots who will not go down without a peaceful, but aggressive fight.
