Hero scholarship to help 43 veterans

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Some veterans got a big boost in support Wednesday as they settle back into life at home.

SportsClips, the VFW and the University of Kansas Medical Center unveiled some big scholarships for returning vets. Forty-three veterans will receive scholarships up to $5,000.

Many veterans said it's a huge help.

"When you're looking at the level of loans going into medical school as you are, of course, any little thing helps. But this scholarship with the $5,000 that I got, it's an amazing help," veteran Seth Atchison said.

SportsClips will raise the money for the scholarships through donations.
