I know there is a VA hospital in Houston and would expect one in San Antonio as well. Truthfully, Texas in general has a low cost of living compared to most places. There is no state income tax (real estate property taxes are high, though but then price of property is itself low). I should say that one reason Texas costs of living are low is that it is a state that doesn't spend much on social services. As long as you don't need such services that is fine...but something to be aware of.
