ODESSA - The VA has opened up a new outpatient clinic in the Basin. According to officials with the West Texas VA Health System, the number of veterans in the area has steadily been rising so this facility is a response to that demand.
On Monday, veterans and community members were invited for a sneak preview of the facility.
"I think we sent a little over 3,000 letters to some of our veterans, telling them that we'd have an open house today (Monday) and hope that they'd come out and take a look. What's even better is the smiles that we're seeing today," Michael Kiefer, Director of the West Texas VA Health System, said.
