WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today announced that the State Veterans Home in Marshalltown has been awarded $529,584 from The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The funds will be used to build a transportation facility and upgrade two generators at the home.
“Our veterans have put their lives on the line for the safety and security of our loved ones. The freedoms that we enjoy are a reflection of their sacrifice and it is our duty to support the men and women of the military long after they’ve left the battlefield,” said Harkin. “As a veteran myself, I congratulate the State Veterans Home on this award and I look forward to the improvements it will bring.”
The State Veterans Home in Marshalltown houses honorably discharged Iowa veterans and/or their spouses with demonstrated medical need.
