The Texas Veterans Commission was bouncing around the Coastal Bend Friday to hold special meetings to inform veterans about the benefits they are entitled to.

They call it their College & Rural Communities Informational Tour. On Friday, the group stopped by Texas A&M University-Kingsville, the Coastal Bend College in Alice, and at VFW Post 9170 in Beeville.

The events were open to college students, veterans, family members and agencies that support veterans.
