HOUSTON, TX — Representative Ana Hernandez was honored with a Legislative Leadership Award by the Texas Veterans Commission during its “Women Veterans Roll Call” event at Space Center Houston from November 19 to the 21st.

As the author of House Bill 867, Hernandez established the Texas Women Veterans Program during the 84th Legislative Session, a permanent agency tasked with assisting Texas servicewomen as they transition to the civilian workforce.

“Our servicemen and women have sacrificed greatly in defense of our nation,” Hernandez said. “Whether supporting their families as they serve overseas or providing for our veterans as they return home, we have a duty to stand by the brave men and women who have selflessly served in our armed forces.”
