Special loans available to veterans affected by floods

blanco riverWIMBERLEY, Texas — Veterans affected by floods from Memorial Day weekend can now apply for unique zero and low-interest loans. The unique program is being run by the Texas Veterans Land Board (TVLB), in conjunction with Hays County Veteran Services.

Peter Vargas, who spent 20 years overseas in the US Air Force, and his wife Juanita, were forced from their home for over three months due to the aftermath of the floods.

“We walked in and it was like Mud City everywhere,” Juanita said.

Over a foot of water gushed inside their home, washing away Peter’s military photos, awards and commendations.

While the Vargas’ were fortunate enough to have insurance, it only covered damage inside their home. Damage to their roof, gutters and paints were not covered.
