LINCOLN — Gov. Dave Heineman on Monday defended the decision to move a Nebraska veterans home from Grand Island amid criticism from callers to his monthly radio call-in show.
One caller from Grand Island said she was “ashamed” of the governor for allowing “fragile” elderly veterans to be moved to a new home planned in Kearney.
