Operation Lone Starr Volunteers Honored with Dinner

2012 Operation Lone Star Military personnel  and volunteers were treated with a delicious dinner sponsored by the District Attorney's Office, Starr County Clerk, and Knights of Columbus Members in appreciation for assisting the residents with much needed medical assistance.

Operation Lone Star was held on July July 23 - 27, 2012 at the Ringgold Middle School and served about 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. 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
