“Honor. Duty. Sacrifice. No three words can be more fitting of those who have served in the United States Armed Forces,” said Chairman Bush. “As a military Veteran myself, I know firsthand what it’s like to wake up each morning, put on the uniform and report for duty. This service is not without great personal sacrifice. I invite Texans across the state to join us as we pay tribute to our military members who have served this great state and nation this Veterans Day.”
