U.S. Representative Bill Flores (R-Texas) is seeking nominations for the 2017 TX-17 Congressional Veterans Commendation, a special tribute to honor local veterans’ military and community service on Veterans Day.

“Our congressional district is blessed to have so many veterans who have served our nation as well as our local communities. Their service is admirable and worthy of recognition and distinction. I am humbled to carry on our local tradition of honoring deserving veterans with the TX-17 Congressional Veterans Commendation,” Congressman Flores said. “I look forward to reviewing the nominations made by members of our community and ultimately recognizing more outstanding veterans for their exemplary service to our communities and nation.”

The TX-17 Congressional Veteran Commendation was created by Congressman Flores in 2012 to honor and recognize distinguished veterans of the 17th Congressional District of Texas. Nominations for the commendation come from the community. To be eligible for nomination, veterans must currently reside in the 17th Congressional District and served both our nation and our communities honorably during their military and post-military careers.

This year’s recipients will be announced on Veterans Day, November 11, 2017. Ceremonies to honor the recipients will be announced at a later date.

For more information regarding the commendation and to nominate a veteran visit Flores.house.gov or contact Jessica McKinney at (254) 732-0748. The submission deadline for nominations is Friday, October 27, 2017.
