Veterans Affairs Secretary To Visit Big Spring

It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the more than 62,000 Veterans served by the Big Spring VA Hospital. The veterans affairs secretary has accepted an invitation from Congressman Randy Neugebauer to visit the hospital in August.

Congressman Neugebauer calls Secretary Anthony Principi's visit a great opportunity. "Give us an opportunity to highlight the kind of care we're providing for veterans in West Texas and give our Veterans a chance to meet the secretary and express their concerns and needs," said Congressman Neugebauer.

The exact date of the visit is not known. A feasibility study is currently underway to determine if Big Spring is the best facility to provide health care for veterans.
