Bills co-sponsored by Senator Patty Murray and Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers to rename the Spokane VA Medical Center recently passed. The new name honors Army Private First Class Joe E. Mann (born in Reardan, WA) and Army Platoon Sergeant Bruce A. Grandstaff (born in Spokane, WA). “Private First Class Mann and Platoon Sergeant Grandstaff gave their lives for their fellow soldiers and their country,” said Senator Murray. “Their selfless actions during World War II and the Vietnam War, respectively, earned them the Congressional Medal of Honor, our nation’s highest military decoration. It is important we remember those, like these two heroes, who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. I am proud the VA Medical Center in Spokane will bear their names.” Full Story
