A Belton woman is receiving national recognition for her work with ill and injured veterans.

Kathy Dunham was named a top member of the DAV (Disabled American Veterans) Auxiliary for 2019.

According to DAV Auxillary, Dunham is a founding member of DAV Auxillary Unit #22 in Nolanville. During her time with the unit, Dunham has served in many leadership roles. She is involved with the unit's Transportation Network, which provides free transportation to Veterans Affairs medical facilities for injured and ill veterans.
