VAMC renaming ceremony Wednesday

January 17, 2012

The time is here …

Wednesday, the VA Medical Center's name will officially become the George H. O'Brien Jr. VA Medical Center. A special ceremony is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m., following a reception at 3:30 p.m.

“We're excited that this has become a reality and we will be honored to recognize such a distinguished veteran who was raised in the Big Spring community,” Iva Jo Hanslik, public affairs officer at VAMC, said.

Senator John Cornyn will assist in unveiling new signage for the medical center. U.S. Rep. Randy Neugebauer submitted the legislation to the House and received approval. Sen. Cornyn submitted the legislation to rename the medical center to the Senate and on Oct. 5, 2011, President Obama signed the legislation into law.
