A Note from the Commander

Front of KWTX-TV Purple Heart Monument

I would like to thank everyone who attended the dedication of KWTX-TV as a Purple Heart TV station and the unveiling of a monument dedicated to all Purple Heart Recipients' by KWTX-TV. The attendance was great.

In attendance were State VIP's, other Veteran organizations, and the general public. The two 2 photos show the monument from the front and back. I made the mistake of parking in front of the monument to take the picture, and my truck showed up on the monument. That is how glossy it is.

Back of KWTX-TV Purple Heart Monument

Again, I thank all Patriots for taking their time to travel to this dedication. If you are ever in the Waco area, stop by and see your monument.

Rep. Dwayne Bohac pushes legislation to end all property taxes for Purple Heart recipients

Read the article detailing House Bill 1591, introduced by Houston Distric 138 State Representative, Dwayne Bohac. Bohac is quoted as saying:

"This bill is not about recognizing these veterans for a medal they received," said Bohac at the committee hearing. "It's about honoring them for what they gave."
