Brazos Valley, Texas - Eight veterans were honored with the Congressional Veteran Commendation award.

The ceremony which started in 2012, honors veterans who have not only served our country admirably while in the military, but who have also served in the Brazos Valley community.

Recipients are nominated by local constituents and represents various branches of the military.

Each award was presented by District-17 US Congressman Bill Flores, who believes a true military hero knows that service does not end when you take off the uniform.
