A 2011 Military Times survey reported in 2011 that only 13 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans belong to veterans organizations that provide support and other benefits.
Connected Texas is proud to support VFW Post Kiernan and is working with members to promote better broadband access, adoption, and use among veterans across the state.
