LA is not the only place where this happened. The Chillicothe VA leased their baseball stadium out to a FOR PROFIT Professional Baseball Team. They followed the same leasing guidelines that were used on the LA Lease. The stadium sits in the center of the Chillicothe VA Medical Centers 308 acres and sits on Federal property where the sale, purchase, possession and use of Alcoholic beverages is ILLEGAL by Federal Law. Alcohol has been sold and consumed within this stadium since the first day it opened which means that veterans participating in the Chillicothe VA's large and very successful Substance Abuse Program cannot attend any of the games.

Speak out, what do you think about the VA giving away its property to both non-profit and for profit enterprises that have nothing to do with the health care of our veterans?
