It is now easier for disabled veterans to get to doctors appointments.

A new Ford Taurus X-7 passenger van, donated by the Ford Motor Company, will help with 3,200 panhandle veterans that do not have reliable transportation, get to and from the hospital.

The Amarillo Veterans Health Care System treats some 25,000 patients annually.

The van will travel the top 26 counties and is already in use.
