There is no doubt where my heart lies when it comes to the military and so when Governor Perry said “the men and women of our military truly are the greatest ambassadors of freedom the world has even seen,” it made the Army brat in me smile with pride for the service my father gave in the United States Army. GO ARMY! 🙂
Governor Perry also announced Housing4TexasHeroes, a new $3 million grant program administered by the Texas Veterans Commission to help veterans buy, build, rehabilitate or rent a home. How fantastic!
“The sacrifices made by the veterans and their families who will benefit from these housing grants are nothing short of extraordinary,” Thomas Palladino, executive director of the Texas Veterans Commission, said.
