I was humbled to take part in a celebration honoring our military veterans at Bell Elementary in Tyler.
All three of my children went to Bell, and I used to go to the ceremony they hosted honoring the parents and family members of students for Veteran's Day. It is always a moving and patriotic ceremony, because it is not just honoring our service men and women from afar - these are families members connected to our community. I attended this year's event and was thankful that I was asked to open the program with the students.
Thank you to all of our service men and women who are currently serving your country, and thank you to the veteran's for your service. If elected to the Texas House, I will work hard to ensure that your concerns are heard in Austin. We are a grateful nation.
