Description

A draft of a bill proposal that would call for a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital to be built in Brevard County, Florida. Central Florida didn't have its own VA hospital, so veterans had to travel to other parts of the state in order to receive medical care. Representative Lou Frey, Jr. (1934-2019), who represented the district that included Brevard, often worked to advocate for veterans issues and was the congressman who introduced the bill. Frey served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1969 to 1979. He was on several committees during his time in office, including the Select Committee on Narcotics Abuse and Control and the Science and Technology Committee. He was also the chairman of the Young Republicans of Florida.
