ODESSA-You might have noticed them walking along the Hwy. 191 service road from Odessa to Midland. The Odessa College Veterans Organization walked to show support for service members at home and abroad.
They say they want to raise special awareness for veterans right here in the basin and especially wounded vets.
"We want to remind everyone that there's a lot of veterans out there,” said Jimmy Leonard, an Odessa College student and former U.S. Army Member. “We thought walking along one of the busiest highways would raise awareness out there."
The group is working to get the word out about a BBQ sale fundraiser on April 20th at The VFW in Odessa.
It's all to raise money for a visit by the group to the Veteran’s Medical Center in San Antonio. You can find more information about the club by contacting the Odessa College Student Affairs Office at (432) 335-6833.
