VA wants more veterans to register for healthcare

The Alaska Veteran Association or VA wants to provide Homer veterans with more health services and a larger clinic. But there’s a hang up. Only half of the estimated veterans in town are signed up for insurance through the VA. Without more registered vets, it may be harder to justify additional services, and getting unregistered vets to sign up isn’t easy.
