December 19, 2007 at 6:01 AM (PT)
ESPN Sports KSPN/LOS ANGELES air personality STEVE MASON broadcast live from the VA Hospital in WESTWOOD on DEC. 19th, from 1-4p. The show is designed to honor our veteran’s of war, inform and educate the public about the issues facing our military veterans and to help bring some holiday cheer to the VA Hospital patients, doctors and staff.
"I came across a stunning statistic last week that stated 1-in-4 of AMERICA's homeless is a veteran. We need to do a better job of taking care of our heroes when they come home from war, whether it's past wars like VIETNAM or current conflicts like IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN," MASON said. "I hope that we can bring some holiday spirit to the heroes at the VA hospital and do some small part in raising awareness for the cause of Veteran's Affairs."
Also appearing on program will be JOHN ONDRASIK from the band FIVE FOR FIGHTING; EMMANUELLE VAUGIER from "CSI NEW YORK" and football greats DEACON JONES and BUBBA SMITH.
