Donations for the families of Sgt. Rudy Rodriguez and Sgt. Estevan Altamirano will be accepted at Weslaco's City Hall by America's Last Patrol.
A large black and white bus will be located in front of city hall and several veterans will be on hand from Wednesday until Friday from the hours of 11 AM to 7 PM. America's Last Patrol Commander Ruben Cordova stated, "Money, anything people can donate. All I need people to think of is what would you need if you had a death in the family and everyone in the family was going to be showing up at your house."
At the end of each day the veterans will be splitting all donations down the middle and giving them directly to the families. Members of the Altamirano family are expected to arrive back in the Valley on Wednesday from their trip to Dover, Delaware to receive the body of Altamirano.
