Laurels to 10th District U.S. Rep. Patrick McHenry, who this week announced the next stage in plans for the Hickory region’s veterans service clinic. News that the Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded a 15-year lease for the second phase of the Community Based Outpatient Clinic means that this important facility will have a permanent home in Hickory. The existing center serves about 5,500 local veterans, and when the second phase opens in late 2010, the center will provide primary care, mental health services and eye case for 11,000 veterans throughout the 10th District.
During his time in office, McHenry has clearly illustrated his commitment to providing after-service care for our nation’s military members. For that, we are proud to salute him.
