The 3rd District is home to many veterans who have sacrificed much on behalf of our country, and the freedom we all enjoy is a result of their courage and commitment.

As an Air Force veteran who served for 29 years, fought in two wars, and spent nearly seven years as a POW in the infamous Hanoi Hilton, I have proudly and strongly supported veterans since I was first elected to serve as a U.S. House Representative. I am pleased to continue my support of our troops and veterans through funding, assistance, and awareness.

North Texas is home to fine Americans and exceptional veterans. To honor our community’s brave veterans’ service and sacrifice, I am proud to host the annual Congressional Veteran Commendation (CVC) for the Third District of Texas. This nominations-based program is designed to publicly recognize the wartime sacrifices and peacetime community involvement of veterans. The CVC also works to preserve these veterans’ stories for future generations of Americans. 

To learn more about this program, visit my Congressional Veteran Commendation Program (CVC) page.
