Dole Comes Home

Bob Dole July 2 2014 11Former Senator and Russell native Bob Dole came home to Russell Wednesday to dedicate a new mobile unit to be used by the Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center for rural health initiatives.

The dedication was hosted at the VFW Post 6240. About 100 people, including veterans and longtime friends of the Senator, attended the event.

The new mobile unit will be used to travel around the state and serve rural areas.

"Kansas has an ongoing need for health outreach to veterans living in rural communities," Senator Dole said. "This new mobile unit will allow the Dole VA Medical Center to meet further educational and health service needs in rural areas across the state. I am proud to be a part of this initiative as the Dole VA reinforces its commitment to serve all deserving veterans within its boundaries."

Following the dedication, Dole met and shook hands with several local folks.
