Over 1000 Petition Signatures to Senators Feinstein and Boxer Backing National Monument Status for Fort Ord
Today we delivered 1200 petition signatures to Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, urging them to support National Monument status for Fort Ord.
"Recently, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar visited Fort Ord in Monterey, and expressed an interest in exploring ways to protect this historic site. As a veteran of the Iraq War, I strongly support the designation of Ft. Ord as a Soldiers National Monument, as do thousands of others," said Mark Starr, Program Director for the Vet Voice Foundation, and an Iraq War Veteran.
