From Bridge Housing to Tent CityRe: Tents are up at new Modesto homeless camp under bridge

Crews erected about 150 tents at a site for a city and county-approved homeless encampment underneath the Ninth Street Bridge along the Tuolumne River in Modesto, California.

This is what you call “bridge housing,” contrary to the Los Angeles VA’s idea of it, which calls for spending $5 million to house 100 Veterans in a few trailers (their so-called bridge housing) right next to the VA police HQ.


For $5 million, we could build a large “Transitional Tent City” on the VA property and take a giant step toward finally ending Veteran homelessness in Los Angeles as promised in the scandalous “settlement agreement” signed more than four years ago by then VA Secretary Robert A. McDonald and the ACLU’s non-Veteran attorney, Ron Olson.

It’s way past time to do the “Right Thing” and honor the promises made, including the settlement’s promised “exit strategy” to evict UCLA’s baseball diamond, Brentwood School’s sports complex, the City of LA’s 12-acre, “rent free” public dog park, the Brentwood Shopping Village’s 4-acre, “rent free” public parking lot, etc.

It’s time for the new Secretary of the VA, Robert L Wilkie, to rightfully enforce the Deed of 1888 and protect this land inside the VA with the same fervor and dedication that his Los Angeles VA bureaucrats and VA police falsely prosecute the American Flag for being a placard outside the VA.

It’s time to declare that Los Angeles is in a “State of Emergency” for homeless Veterans and to immediately execute a “A Crisis Humanitarian Tent City” with a Hospitality Triage Center on the Grand Lawn of the Los Angeles VA, Northeast corner of Wilshire & San Vicente Boulevards.

Absolute Action, no more fabricated promises.

If not now, when?

“Save Our Veterans Land” and “Bring Our Homeless Veterans HOME.”

God Bless America and the Veterans Revolution!
