“Taking care of those who’ve served our great nation in uniform is a top priority for me.”
Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – (HARLINGEN, TX) – U.S. Congresswoman Mayra Flores (TX-34) released the following statement after visiting the Veterans Affairs (VA) Harlingen Medical Center:
“Taking care of those who’ve served our great nation in uniform is a top priority for me. Today’s visit to the Harlingen VA Medical Center allowed me the opportunity to see firsthand the great work being done at the facility and to share constituent concerns my office has received,” said Congresswoman Flores. “It was evident to me the passion and clear dedication the executive leadership and staff have in serving our local veterans. My office will continue working closely with them to ensure our nation’s veterans receive the care they deserve.”
Congresswoman Flores met with Executive Director, Mr. Homero Martinez III, Chief of Staff, Dr. Jennifer Wood, Associate Director, Ms. Yuri Gonzales, and ADPCS/Nurse Executive, Ms. Rebeca Buhidar. The tour of the medical center included visits to both administrative areas and medical areas.
Since arriving in Congress, Congresswoman Flores has been a fierce ally of veterans and their needs. Most recently, she supported and voted ‘YES’ on the Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act’, which has since become law. This law now ensures that veterans exposed to toxic hazards during their military service will be eligible to receive medical care and benefits. For more information on this, click here.
