Do you know a veteran in this community who deserves recognition for all of the sacrifices and dedication to service? You can nominate them to be honored with a Congressional Veteran Commendation.
“The Congressional Veteran Commendation (CVC) program allows veterans from Texas’ Fourth District to be honored for all they sacrificed to keep America safe and free,” Congressman Pat Fallon stated in a news release.
Any veteran who is a resident of Texas Congressional District, who has been honorably discharged from a branch of the United States Armed Forces after serving as an active duty personnel or a reservist called to duty may be nominated for the award. Nominations can be made a veteran they’d like to see honored or a veteran interested in receiving the recognition. While nominations, if designated on the application form, may be kept secret from the veteran, the person submitting the information must provide their name and contact information (this will help if Fallon’s Office has questions regarding the submitted information).
Fallon presents awards to veterans annually. Nomination applications are due at 5 p.m. Aug. 1, 2022. Decisions will be announced on Sept. 12, with awards to be presented at a ceremony in November.
