PJI asking Veterans Affairs to defend CA widow

Bible study group 1A law firm representing an elderly California widow, threatened with “involuntary discharge” from a veterans home, is asking the federal Veterans Administration to intervene.

Artis Breau, 84, upset a fellow resident at the California Veterans Home in Yountsville late last year after describing her religious views about heaven and hell.

The resident complained about the incident and that complaint kicked off an investigation.

Breau, who served at the time as a volunteer chaplain at the center, moved there approximately 10 years ago with her late husband, a Korean War veteran. She worked as a civilian employee in the Pentagon during the war.

Breau is represented by the Pacific Justice Institute, which informed OneNewsNow in March that an investigation by CalVet led to her losing her chaplain position.

The possible next step is for her to be kicked out of the facility.  

PJI attorney Brad Dacus now tells OneNewsNow the law firm started an online petition addressed to President Donald Trump and to Robert Wilkie, secretary of Veterans Affairs, urging them to investigate CalVet and its actions against Breau.

"This is an outrageous violation of the freedoms and liberties that these veterans worked for and many died for,” Dacus says. “And that's why we at the Pacific Justice institute are wholeheartedly representing her without charge." 

Reached by OneNewsNow for the March story, CalVet stated via email that the “safety, security, and wellbeing of all of our residents is our top priority and we take any allegations of misconduct or violations of our policies very seriously."
