I call the areas that used to have an office "Veteran Dead Zones" and encourage any soldier who will have to rely on Veterans Affairs to avoid living in these areas.

In essence, the government saves $5-million in operating costs, but the savings in providing the services will be in the tens of millions of dollars.
