A homeless veteran who helped get a grant for the Valor Clinic in Monroe County was remembered last evening.

Donny Houser succumbed to cancer in recent weeks, but not before helping the Valor Clinic Foundation in Jonas secure funding through an LSA grant. Houser was the perfect example of why Valor needs funding.

Mark Baylis, the founder of the Valor Clinic Foundation, spoke of the impact Houser had on the community of veterans.

"He served his country well and we hope that his efforts here are even more driven than we realized," Baylis said.

The LSA Grant will help the Valor Clinic Foundation provide assistance and shelter to veterans in need.
