Representing the 32nd District of Texas

Resources for North Texas Veterans

The North Texas area is home to thousands of veterans whom I am proud to represent. Our veterans deserve our endless gratitude for their selfless service to our great nation. There are multiple organizations throughout our region who provide different opportunities and resources for our veterans. These organizations play an integral role in helping veterans find work, transition into civilian life, and serve as a support system for those who have put their lives on the line for our freedom. Here is a list of different organizations in our region. In addition, my team is always happy to  help with any veterans issue so if you have any questions please feel free to contact Piper Vaughn in my District Office at 972.392.0505 or via email, Piper.Vaughn@mail.house.gov
