“Hands off the VA,” was a chant heard during a rally to attempt to save the Brooklyn VA Medical Center, 800 Poly Place, on Sunday, March 13, where U.S. Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-Southwest Brooklyn-Staten Island) joined a crowd of veterans and local leaders to stop a proposal that would close the facility.

Veteran and Bay Ridge resident Mickey Wedlock has a long history with the facility. “Seven years ago, this VA saved my life,” he said. “I would not be here without this VA.”
