Walking to San Antonio: The veterans have arrived

Now with an official escort by the SAPD and representatives of Mayor Phil Hardberger's office, the band of veterans from South Texas have arrived at the Alamo, thus completing their journey. They succeeded at bringing attention to their cause, now they just need someone with the power to do something about it to take it from there. In the meantime, celebrate what you've accomplished, ladies and gentlemen. Happy Veterans' Day to you all.

The McAllen Monitor has more on the near-arrest story. I'll bet there are a lot of people in San Antonio who are glad that this got resolved before any handcuffs came out. Link via Dos Centavos.

Great story, and I am sure this will lead to the construction of a Vets hospital or clinical center in their part of Texas.
