Veterans in Yountville want more security at their local veterans center after last week’s shooting that left three staffers dead. Veterans at the Pathway Home say guards at the facility only carry batons and pepper spray, not nearly enough to deal with a suspect like the person who came to the facility last week and murdered Christine Loeber, Dr. Jennifer Gonzales and Dr. Jennifer Golick before turning the gun on himself. Some veterans say with the entrance wide open, it’s too easy for someone with a grudge to get on site. Pathway Home officials say they are working on improving security at the home that helps veterans suffering from PTSD.
