star History of the Home
Amarillo was chosen by the VLB as the site for the seventh Texas State Veterans Home in 2003. The home is named after two Panhandle heroes: former VLB member and longtime veterans advocate Mike Ussery and Medal of Honor recipient Marine PFC Charles Howard Roan.  Roan died on Pelelieu when he threw himself on a grenade to save his fellow Marines. Ussery was a member of the Veterans Land Board and a longtime veterans advocate instrumental in getting a Veterans Home for Amarillo. He died just before the groundbreaking for the home.
