Burnet County commissioners learned Tuesday that their county ranked second overall in the state of Texas in 2016 for land loans through the Texas General Land Office's Veterans Land Board (VLB).

Ken Wallingford, a former Vietnam prisoner of war and senior advisor to the VLB, visited the court to present a certificate of appreciation and Texas flag to honor the county for having an extremely active veterans' presence, with $4,067,064 in land loans for fiscal year 2016 in Burnet County and to praise Veterans Officer Bill Worley, who was there for the presentation.
