Residents up in arms about new V.F.W. outpost

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - Veterans are fighting a battle against residents and to keep their Veterans of Foreign Wars outpost at a new location in Ocean Beach.

The location is at Point Loma Boulevard and Ebers Street, nearby there is an elementary school and a preschool.

Residents say they're not against the V.F.W outpost or the veterans that would occupy it, it's the bar that would come along with it. They think it would attract drunk and rowdy behavior and ruin their family friendly neighborhood.

The posts commander says while they have signed a lease that doesn't mean they have to occupy the property.

Under city law, they would be allowed to do so, because of how the area is zoned.
