The office of U.S. Congressman Michael Burgess is accepting nominations for the 2020 Congressional Veteran Commendation.
The Congressional Veteran Commendation, in conjunction with the Veterans History Project sponsored by the Library of Congress, has been created to honor the distinguished veterans of Texas’ 26th Congressional District and to preserve their stories for future generations of Americans.
Veterans who are nominated must be currently residing in the 26th District of Texas (Tarrant County: Haltom City, Haslet, Keller, North Richland Hills, Watauga, Westlake and Fort Worth) and have served our nation with honor consistent with the finest traditions of military service. The nominated veterans must also have served their community. A Review Board comprised of past commendation recipients will review the nominations and make recommendations. Up to five individuals may be named to receive the 26th Congressional District Veteran Commendation for 2020.
The deadline to submit a nomination is September 28, 2020. The form may be found at this link:https://burgess.house.gov/uploadedfiles/vetcommendationform2020.pdf
