San Mateo, CA - Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-San Francisco/San Mateo/Redwood City) will hold a press conference Friday, January 24 at 11 a.m. in her district office with WWII veteran John Brenan of Millbrae whose long running battle with the VA over a disability claim ended last week with a VA award. Brenan was sent to Hiroshima after the Atomic Bomb was dropped. He was exposed to radiation and later developed cancer, but the VA rejected his claim after making several processing errors. He will be joined by veterans of other wars who also had difficult encounters with the Oakland VA.
