Texas Democratic Party Executive Director Crystal K. Perkins issued the following statement:
“Today, on Women’s Veteran’s Day and on the 70th anniversary of the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act, we reflect on the contributions of women have made to our military and we honor their sacrifices and service to our country.
“Texas is home to more women veterans than any other state in the nation. Texas Democrats acknowledge the unique challenges women veterans face and are committed to raising awareness, protecting the benefits that they have rightfully earned, and fighting for the veterans of tomorrow.
“Our women veterans are the epitome of leadership and resiliency and we’re proud of our veteran women like Lupe Valdez, Kim Olson, Gina Ortiz Jones, and MJ Hegar that are leading the Democratic ticket.”
