Our military men and women give so much for our freedom and liberties. In addition to their military careers, there are many veterans that also give back to our local communities. In order to recognize these contributions, my office has created the TX-17 Congressional Veteran Commendation to honor those veterans who have served both our nation and community honorably during their military and post-military careers.
To nominate a veteran, please visit my website and fill out the nomination form. To be eligible for nomination, veterans must currently reside in the 17th Congressional District, have served the nation honorably during their military career, and demonstrated dedication to their community. The completed nomination form, along with any additional information pertaining to the veteran's service, should be submitted to my Waco District Office. The deadline to submit nominations is October 12, 2012. It is my hope that you nominate one of our many local heroes to receive this unique commendation.
