Issue Position: Veterans & Military

Issue Position

Location: Unknown

Almost all of my adult life has been linked to Ft. Hood and veterans. I served as Post Veterinarian from 1970 to 1972. After signing out of the Army in 1972, I began private practice -- obviously many of my clients for the next 30 years were veterans. Being a Veteran and serving veterans, I understand the issues that are important to veterans.During the past three sessions there have been many bills passed in an effort to help veterans. My position is simple -- If it helps veterans, I vote yes. Some of the major accomplishments I have supported are:

*A constitutional amendment that allows exemption from property tax on the homes of disabled veterans
*Enabling legislation to extend the property tax exemption to surviving widows of disabled veterans
*College tuition exemption for dependents of disabled veterans and veterans killed in action
*Specialty license plates honoring veterans
*Reduced fee for handgun licenses for veterans
*Extended pre-kindergarten eligibility to veterans' dependent children and stepchildren
*Exempted deploying soldiers from a variety of fees including copies of documents, marriage licenses, property transfers, etc.
*Enhanced loans to veterans by the Texas Veterans Land Board
*Enhanced parental custody rights for deployed veterans
*Expanded "Disabled Veterans" parking license plates
*Extended waiver of hunting and fishing license fees
*Exemption from probate fees for K.I.A. veterans

There were many more veterans' issues. As you can see, I have supported and continue to support veterans' issues. After all, I am a veteran.
