Collin County is honored to be called home by nearly 40,000 of our nation’s valiant veterans. As a Marine, ensuring my fellow servicemen and women receive the recognition they deserve for their sacrifice to our nation is incredibly important.
That’s why I’m excited to help local veterans obtain the military medals they earned in service to our country. On April 12, 2019 my office will host a Badges of Honor event to assist veterans and their families in beginning the military medal request process. Paperwork required by each military branch can be daunting, however my staff will be available to help TX-03 veterans and their loved ones complete the necessary forms.
The event will take place on Friday, April 12, 2019 at my Collin County Office located at 5600 Tennyson Blvd, Suite 275, Plano, TX 75024 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
If you are interested in requesting your military medals or decorations, or those of a loved one, please RSVP online or call my Collin County office at (972) 202-4150.
It is an honor and privilege to serve you in the United States House of Representatives.
You are invited to Frisco Mayor Cheney’s Veterans Social.

Veterans Day is intended to thank all those who honorably served in the military – in war time or peace time.
Veterans Day is observed every year on November 11th. Veterans Day was originally called “Armistice Day” when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed this day in November 1919. Armistice is when warring parties agree to stop fighting and “Armistice Day” recognizes the end of World War 1 when hostilities ceased on November 11th at 11 A.M, 1918 (11th hour, of the 11th, of the 11th month).
On May 13th, 1938 Armistice Day was declared a legal holiday each year. A day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace. Originally Armistice Day only honored veterans of World War.
On November 11th, 1947 Raymond Weeks, a World War II veteran, organized a “National Veterans Day” parade in Birmingham, Alabama to recognize veterans of all wars.
This celebration led to Congress changing Armistice Day to Veterans Day in 1954 to recognize Veterans of all U.S. wars.
