Black Hills VA Officials Grilled At Congressional Hearing

Aug 14, 2014

Part of the crowd gathered in Hot Springs for the congressional hearing on the proposal to move the local VA.

Hundreds of Hot Springs residents turned out for a congressional field hearing on the proposal to close parts of the VA facility there and move some veterans services to Rapid City.

U.S. Congresswoman Kristi Noem joined three other Congressional representatives at the hearing.   Officials with the Veterans Administration testified along with some area residents who are adamantly opposed to the idea of moving the VA.
