DEADLINE JULY 27TH: Final Year to Nominate Local Veterans for Congressional Veteran Commendation Ceremony
PLANO, TX – With only a few days left to nominate local veterans for the final Congressional Veteran Commendation (CVC) Award, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) encourages folks to consider their family, friends, neighbors, and work colleagues for this prestigious honor. Johnson established the annual CVC to publically recognize the wartime sacrifices and peacetime community involvement of Collin County’s military veterans. It is a nominations-based award – anyone may nominate a veteran, and they may nominate as many veterans as they would like.
The deadline to nominate veterans ends Thursday, July 27th at 5:00 pm central.
Due to the fact this is Rep. Johnson’s last term in office, this will also be the final year to nominate someone for a Congressional Veteran Commendation.
“North Texas is home to many men and women who have donned the uniform in defense of Freedom,” said Johnson. “What’s more, many of these patriots continue to serve their community in a variety of ways after they retire from active duty. To honor these exceptional hometown heroes, it is my distinct honor and privilege to provide an opportunity for our community to thank these veterans for their service and sacrifice. That is where my Congressional Veteran Commendation (CVC) ceremony comes into play. This annual, nominations-based program is designed to not only honor these exceptional veterans, but to inspire others to build a legacy of service. I look forward to learning more about this year’s nominees and having a large community turnout later this year to honor our local heroes.”
