WESLACO, TX (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — This Saturday, Congressman Filemon Vela and Congressman Rubén Hinojosa will host a Veterans Enrollment Fair.
The event is scheduled to be held on April 20th in Weslaco at the Tomas Garces Texas National Guard Armory, located at 1100 Vo-Tech Drive, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Both Congressmen are encouraging all eligible veterans to enroll in the VA health system and take advantage of their earned benefits.
The higher enrollment for benefits will demonstrate the need and demand for a full-service VA hospital in the Rio Grande Valley.
