October 5, 2015—A Facebook group called “VA IS LYING” is taking their message offline. Their billboard campaign is simple and impossible to ignore.
On a yellow background, bold, black capital letters shout “VA is Lying, Veterans Are Dying.” Then a message encouraging onlookers to find the Facebook group.
The latest billboard popped up in Tomah, Wisconsin near a VA facility. Other ones have gone up in Tampa, Florida and Minneapolis, Minnesota. From WXOW:
Candace Baer-Delis lost her father at the Tomah VA in January and is a member of the group.
Baer-Delis is from Marshfield and took part in the unveiling of the billboard on Monday.
“It’s a project that was started to try to make the public aware of what’s going on within the VA,” she said. They are basically going up where the worst problems are at least at this point.”
