SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio has been named a Hidden Hero City.

The program raises awareness about untold stories of military caregivers and looks for solutions for the challenges and long-term needs veterans' caregivers face.

Becoming a Hidden Hero City allows San Antonio to help those individuals.

San Antonio is known as Military City USA and is home to four military installations.

May is Military Appreciation Month, and the city will plan an observance day to honor and recognize local military and veteran caregivers in partnership with the National Hidden Heroes Campaign.
