THE BRONX - Veterans at the Bronx VA Hospital got a visit from Miss USA for Valentine's Day today.

Nana Meriwether came to the hospital as part of National Valentines for Veterans Week. For 18 years, state Sen. Jefferey Klein has organized the event at the hospital to honor the veterans.

"These veterans have given so much to us. It's the least I could do to come visit them on this special day," said Meriwether.
