It is GREAT news that a VA Clinic will be located in Rockwood. This has been long awaited and I, for one, welcome it instead of driving to Knoxville, or Murfreesboro. It is a shame our local newspaper never mentioned the name Rockwood in the article "other than a veteran's address of Rockwood,Tn. and even moreso the name of our County Mayor Mike Farmer was never mentioned. I know that Mr. Yeager worked very had on this, but Mayor Farmer sure went to the limits in his efforts also. Let's all welcome the Clinic to Rockwood and Roane County..Ray Collett
