Going to the doctor can sometimes be a challenge for veterans, but a local group is trying to make it easier.

A barbecue was put on Tuesday at the VA outpatient clinic on Old Brownsville Road by members of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association. They said they wanted to give veterans waiting to see a doctor a free meal to take their mind off their sometimes long wait.

As for what was on the menu -- good ol' fashioned hot dogs and hamburgers!
