I am proud to honor all of the servicemen and women that have sacrificed so much for our country, and ask you to join in recognizing those who have answered the call to serve.”

For those residents in the 25th Congressional District of Texas who have served in the military, or know someone who has, Williams is inviting them to share their memories with him by submitting photos and stories from their time in service.
