Three wars, three veterans
July 23, 1986: World War II veteran Emmet Burke, 72, left, joins Korean War vet Charles Alderson, 52, center, and First World War vet Jack Coopersmith, 94, in a salute during a protest against sale of Veterans Administration land in West Los Angeles.
This unpublished photo was taken during a series of protests against the proposed sale by the VA of 31 acres of its 164-acre hospital property on Sepulveda and 80 acres of a 442-acre VA complex adjoining Westwood. The proposed sale was part of a national asset sale aimed at reducing the federal deficit. Congress blocked the sale.
