On November 5, 2009, many of us remember exactly where we were when we heard about the unspeakable evil unfolding at Fort Hood. Fourteen innocent Americans lost their lives that day, including an unborn baby who never had a chance at life. Since then, our community has come together to heal and we have shown the world the very best of America.
It was a tremendous privilege today to present Filipino World War II veteran Jose Monzano Somera with the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest award bestowed by Congress on a civilian. Mr. Somera served from 1944-1946 with units of the U.S.
Over the last few months, I’ve had the opportunity to hear from members of our community about what matters most to them. It is a privilege to be your voice in Congress and to fight on your behalf for continued job creation, economic growth, and bettering the lives of our Texas families. Click on the video below to see a few of my visits throughout the 25th District.
We’ve had a busy few weeks back in Washington, but I wanted to recap our district work period during the month of August, where I visited every county in our 25th District and logged over 3,300 miles between nearly 70 events.
I am pleased to share some great news with you. The Central Texas Veterans Health Care System (CTVHCS) is expanding its services for veterans with two new clinics. One in Copperas Cove and one in Killeen.
I wanted to update you on the work I am doing to provide better care to our veterans in Central Texas. The Central Texas Veterans Health Care System (CTVHCS), one of the largest healthcare systems in the nation, is growing rapidly and in need of additional resources to meet the needs of our veteran community.
It was great to be back home in TX-25 the last two weeks. Visiting with you – the constituents – is the best part of my job and is vital to ensuring that your ideas and voices are heard in Washington.
We covered over 1,800 miles during the recess period, hosting 26 events in all of our district’s 13 counties!
