Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Americans owe a tremendous debt to all who have worn our nation’s uniform. Today, we honor the courage and service of these brave men and women who protect our freedom every day.
“Veterans and their families deserve far more than a brief thanks for their service. We understand that although we can never serve our veterans as well as they have served us, we can try. From protecting Texas’ promise that honors veterans and their families with tuition-free college classes, to ending veteran homelessness, and making sure our veterans have great paying jobs, Texas must lead on veterans issues.
“Our veterans risked their lives to defend us, today and every day we honor their service, no matter the costs.”
