Kaufman County recognized for outstanding service to Texas veterans

County revenue raised as VLB land and home loans top $2.9 million for 2013
(AUSTIN, Texas)—In 2013, Texas veterans borrowed more than $2.9 million from the Veterans Land Board to buy land and homes in Kaufman County, earning the county and its veterans’ service office special praise from Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson. “The VLB loaned more than $500 million last year to help Texas veterans buy their piece of the American Dream,” Patterson said. “This success is an example how government can work—the intergovernmental partnership between the VLB and Texas counties the best in the nation and the result is veterans getting the benefits they’ve earned.”
