Soft Opening for The Tuskegee Airmen Texas State Veterans Home

November 16, 2022

As October came to a close, I had the opportunity to celebrate the soft opening of the 10th Texas State Veterans Home with Keynote Speaker D’Juan Wilcher – Deputy Director of the Veterans and Military Families George W. Bush Institute, elected officials, members of the Fort Worth community, and individuals from across the state who are committed to serving Texas Veterans.

The Texas Veterans Land Board (VLB) was honored to be joined by a surviving member of the Tuskegee Airmen, General Enoch “Woody” Woodhouse, who was presented with an award recognizing his selfless service in defense of our freedom.

The VLB, on behalf of the people of Texas, has celebrated Veterans Day every day by taking care of the 1.8 million military Veterans that reside in the most patriotic state and the greatest country that the world has ever seen. This new home will be more than just a facility, more than brick and mortar. It will truly be a home for our bravest heroes, and I want to thank the future staffers and skilled nursing professionals that will care for the military Veterans who will reside here.
