It is on a bittersweet note that the Bay Pines Veterans Affairs Medical Center has been renamed for U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young. It’s just a shame that it took the death of Young to catapult the name change.
Nevertheless, after being remembered for his advocacy and support of our armed forces, it’s only fitting and proper for the new name to be the C.W. Bill Young Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. No doubt, Young would be both humbled and pleased. It’s a proud moment for Young’s widow Beverly and the rest of his family.
Yes indeed — one of the many ways that Young’s legacy shall live on.
