KSLA Salutes: OBVAMC Gears up for winter

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - It was a full house Thursday at Overton Brooks VA Medical Center as more than 100 veterans were treated to new boots and warm clothes.

The near gear just in time for these veterans to battle the winter cold.

It's all part of a bigger initiative to end veteran homelessness known nationally as Stand Down.

In addition to the gear and a warm meal, veterans were also connected to other service groups to help guide them on their journey.
