Group effort made to bring vets’ home to Oxford

The community worked together to bring the Mississippi State Veterans Home to Oxford in 1996 – four years after the State Veteran’s Affairs Board announced its intent to build three homes around Mississippi. Today, the community’s support of the home is just as important as it was 15 years ago. To help show support of our veterans, the Oxford EAGLE will be running a weekly profile of several veterans living at the home today. (April 18, 2011, Page 1A)
