Judge, Sheriff Welcome Operation Lone Star Organizers

Judge Eloy Vera and Sheriff Rene Fuentes visited with Operation Lone Star Organizers and were very pleased to see that many residents participated in this event. Operation Lone Star was held on July July 23 - 27, 2012 at the Ringgold Middle School and served over 800 persons.  The Operation is a joint exercise of State Health and Human service agencies, Texas Military Forces, County Health and Human Services and other entities to prepare for disasters.  All organizations work together to bring free medical services to under-served communities along the Texas border.  Some of the services provided free of charge were immunizations for children, diabetic screenings, blood pressure screening, hearing and vision exams, sports physicals and much more. The operation is made possible with the help of hundreds of local service groups and volunteers.  Judge Vera would like to thank everyone who volunteered in this very worthwhile cause and also commends all of the organizers for a job well done.  (Starr County Public Relations Office)
