Dept. Of Veterans Affairs (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)Progress is finally being made in helping military vets in South Louisiana. The VA is going to lease a 5,000 square foot facility in Lake Charles to serve as an interim clinic which should be operational by the end of the year. The Veterans Administration decided against a contract to house a temporary clinic in the former Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Lafayette so local vets will have to wait a bit longer before the case load is lightened at the present VA clinic.
