People come and go from the entrance to the new Veterans Affairs outpatient clinic on Fillmore Hill during its opening day Aug. 18. A public grand-opening event is planned Sept. 26. The three-story, 76,000-square-foot facility will greatly expand vets' medical services in the Colorado Springs area, according to VA officials. Building construction started on Veterans Day in 2012. The Westside Pioneer's story preceding the opening, including details about its operations, can be found by clicking here. Pending final Congress approval (considered a formality), the building is to be named after PFC Floyd Kenneth Lindstrom, a local resident who received the Medal of Honor in World War II but was killed later in the war.
