The V.A. Hospital in Big Spring could soon have a new name.

A new bill in Austin would name the hospital after George H. O'Brien, Junior.

Congressman Randy Neugebauer says O'Brien graduated from Big Spring High School back in 19-44.

He then went on to join the U.S. Marine Corps reserve and served in the Korean War.

O'Brien passed away back in 2005.

Neugebauer says the new name will keep O'Brien's memory alive in Big Spring.
