Boback Recognizes State Veterans’ Home Week
6/8/2011

The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has unanimously adopted a resolution authored by Rep. Karen Boback (R-Columbia/Luzerne/Wyoming) to recognize the week of June 12 through June 19 as “State Veterans’ Home Week” in Pennsylvania. 

“As the chairman of the Subcommittee on Military and Veterans Facilities, I recognize the important services offered by state veterans’ homes,” said Boback.  “Veterans provided an invaluable service to this nation and they deserve to be treated with dignity in safe and comfortable facilities.  Our state veterans’ homes do a phenomenal job of caring for veterans, and I thank them for all they do.” 

Boback noted that the public is encouraged to visit a state-supported home in Erie, Hollidaysburg, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Scranton or Spring City to thank the veterans and personnel during State Veterans’ Home Week. 

House Resolution 327 was adopted by the House on June 7. 

The Subcommittee on Military and Veterans Facilities operates under the auspices of the House Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee, chaired by Rep. Stephen E. Barrar (R-Chester/Delaware).  In addition to the six state veterans’ homes, the subcommittee is also responsible for legislation and issues that impact state-run military facilities, such as Fort Indiantown Gap in Lebanon County.  Boback is also a member of the advisory council for the Gino Merli State Veterans Home. 

More information about Boback, her services for veterans and her legislative priorities is available at RepBoback.com and Facebook.com/RepBoback
