UNACCOMPANIED VETERAN PROGRAM

The Unaccompanied Veterans Program was started by Commissioner George P. Bush when he first took office in 2015. Commissioner Bush also serves as the Chairman of the Texas Veterans Land Board. The four Texas State Veterans Cemeteries across Texas have cultivated relationships with community stakeholders including funeral homes, county services, local judges and Patriot Guard Riders to ensure all eligible Veterans are given honorable and dignified burial services at each cemetery in Abilene, Corpus Christi, Killeen and Mission, Texas. Local communities have provided significant and overwhelming support for the Unaccompanied Veterans Program, with considerable public attendance at services that provide military honors to the Veteran during this last rite of passage. The Unaccompanied Veteran services stand as a testament to the respect and understanding these communities have to the value of the military family. Please join us at an Unaccompanied Veteran Service to honor these Veterans.
