Lynda attended the groundbreaking ceremony of the Veterans Village in Vancouver’s Minnehaha area. The Veterans Village is the vision of Michael Stacey, a local Vietnam War veteran. It was a longtime goal by Stacy to establish a community for local veterans that are homeless. The village stands at 5118 NE Saint James Road. It underwent five phases before completion.
Lynda is a firm believer that to look out for those who have done valiant service is our duty. In this way, we are able to show our gratitude for the sacrifices that these veterans did for the protection of our country. Lynda encourages us to fulfill this duty in our own simple ways. According to her, one of the best ways to do that is to help the veterans cope with the tremendous trauma caused by the wars they fought in. This is to help them find their way back into our society.
