Overview of Military and Veterans Affairs in San Antonio
“Every year about 4,000 people go through San Antonio to transition from military to civilian life. We can’t just call ourselves Military City USA, we have to take the actions that really shows and proves that we are. In the elected position that I serve in today, I know that the best way to serve my constituency is through job creation.”
Philosophy of Military and Veterans Affairs in San Antonio
“I served our nation proudly in the U.S. Navy and Naval Reserve and will always fight to make sure our military is protected and prepared. The promise we make to the American people who serve is if they protect us, then we will take care of you. As a former member of the military and former employer, I understand first hand how difficult it is to rejoin civilian life and also how difficult it is to find qualified people.”
