A local veteran’s group has turned over around 10,000 petitions to Congressman Frank LoBiondo to try and lobby for more medical services for veterans in South Jersey. LoBiondo is going to take the signatures to the Veteran’s Affairs in order to demonstrate the need in the area. LoBiondo says that the VA has said there is not enough of enrolled veterans to justify a veteran’s hospital in South Jersey. The petitions advocate for a “Veteran Health Services Pilot Program” to be executed at Shore Memorial Hospital in Somers Point to provide radiation and dialysis treatments to area veterans. The petitions were accepted at the American Legion Post #352 in Somers Point.
