Honoring the Fallen Throughout TX-11

My family and I commemorated Memorial Day by paying tribute to the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. 

Memorial Day is a solemn reminder of the courage, dedication, and selflessness displayed by those who fought for our freedom. These heroes answered the call of duty and left behind their families to protect the values of this nation. May we continue to express our deepest gratitude to those who fought and fell, as well as to their families, who carry the weight of their loss every day.

Texas-11 is home to many brave servicemembers who paid the ultimate sacrifice. One of these heroes is Craig Ledsome of Brownwood, Texas. He was a friend, leader, husband, father, and Marine who lost his life in the line of duty during a mission in Western Iraq on November 25th, 2006. 

The community of Brownwood honored him with a portion of the highway in his name and the Michael Craig Ledsome Memorial Playground at Veterans Park. Please join me in honoring Craig and his sacrifice to our country, and praying for his family as they continue to feel his loss.
