Veterans Clinic to Stay Open, Official Says

From Times Staff Reports

U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Anthony J. Principi promised Tuesday that the only veterans clinic in the San Fernando Valley will remain open.

At a meeting with 300 veterans at the Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center, Principi assured the former military men and women that the sprawling clinic in North Hills will continue providing medical and counseling services.

On Veterans Day, Valley veterans picketed the clinic and complained that services were being cut, forcing them to endure freeway traffic and long bus rides to receive treatment at a West Los Angeles center.
