A delegation from Veteran's for Peace toured a bit of Rockport on their way from Corpus Christi to Houston. The delegation included a group that had traveled to Israel and Palestine to witness events there. The group is presenting their experiences at programs in Dallas, Austin, Corpus Christi, and Houston but wanted to learn how Rockport was affected by Hurricane Harvey while they were in the area. In addition to speaking with some local people, the delegation stopped at the Rockport Relief Camp to see the work being done there. The delegates are veterans, like former Army paratrooper Tarak Kauff,  from the various branches of service, as well as filmmakers and photographers who support peace causes and suppressed communities.
