Veterans to Protest for Local VA Hospital
RIO GRANDE VALLEY — Some local veterans are going to visit the President Obama's fundraising event in San Antonio to demand change. The group, Veterans with America's Last Patrol, say they'll remind President Obama of the promise he made about bringing a VA hospital to the Valley as soon as he became president. The Valley has two VA clinics, but not a hospital that's open 24 hours as veteran Josemaria Vasquez states, "Whenever you promise somebody something, to us you're giving your word of honor, so where is your honor? Where is your word?"
