Eleven-year-old Eliud Montoya came to Operation Lone Star Monday to get some shots for the upcoming school year. "It just felt like a little pinch." It's all part of Operation Lone Star, where several local organizations come together to train in case of mass disaster and in turn, offer free health services to the public. "It's a training thing for us to do so we can get better at our skills, medical skills." Free glucose screenings, diabetes testing and blood pressure are services provided by the Laredo EMS cadets. "It's a good opportunity for us to give back to the community. It also gives the cadets more exposure so that when they get on an ambulance they have that type of exposure and this familiarity with what we do in the community." Free vision and hearing screening are being offered as well. Doctors are also there for private consultations. Immunizations are available to all children needing to meet state requirements for school for only $8-dollars. The services are being held at Washington Middle School from 8 a.m.- 4 p.m. until Thursday, and also from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Friday. This is the seventh year they are holding Operation Lone Star in Laredo.
