Recognition for veterans also began in the lower Rio Grande Valley.
The city of Brownsville hosted its annual veteran’s luncheon this morning.
Dedicated to our veterans all across the nation but also those here in Brownsville, serving our communities. According to Commissioner At Large Cesar De Leon, there are more than 140 veteran city employees in Brownsville.
Today, those service men and women received a free lunch, recognition, and a city proclamation for their service.
Commissioner De Leon said, “I just want to thank every single veteran that has served in the past, I know it’s tough and it’s even tougher when you come back and you don’t have the support network which is one of the challenges we’re going to be focusing on next year.”
Commissioner De Leon says it’ll be his mission to incorporate veterans that have served back into our community by prioritizing them when it comes to city job recruitment.
