Chairman Miller to Introduce Legislation Naming Florida VA Medical Center in Honor of Rep. Bill Young

Oct 22, 2013

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Chairman Jeff Miller will introduce legislation that would name the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Bay Pines, Fla., the “C.W. Bill Young Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center.”

“America’s veterans knew no greater advocate than Rep. Bill Young. An Army National Guardsman and Reservist for over a decade and an elected official for more than fifty years, Bill dedicated his life to serving his fellow Americans. With his passing, Congress lost one of its greatest treasures and the people of Florida lost an outstanding representative. During his time in public office, Bill was a tireless supporter of veterans as well as America’s service men and women. That’s why naming this VA facility, which serves so many of those whose lives Bill touched, is such a fitting way to honor his life’s work.” – Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs
