CORPUS CHRISTI - Our Congressman Blake Farenthold is in the city today hosting the Coastal Bend Veterans' Summit.

The event is being held onboard the USS Lexington, and it's free for veterans, all active military and their families.

It's organized by the military for the military, with a former Armed Services Committee Chairman as the special guest speaker.

Organizations will be presenting information for military families on health, employment and even business development.
