ROCKWALL, TX – Jan. 26, 2021 — The Rockwall County Commissioners Court recognized post-9/11 veterans in the county with a resolution during its meeting today, Jan. 26th.
The resolution honored the 4.7 million veterans who have continued to serve our nation since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, as well as the 7,054 veterans who were killed defending our country since that day.
More than 2,000 post-9/11 veterans live within Rockwall County, and continue to be involved in all aspects of our society including business, government, and community service. Organizations such as the Rockwall Veterans Business Alliance work to unify, collaborate and promote opportunity for veteran-owned or managed businesses in the Rockwall area each and every day.
“Our veterans continue to be involved and to give back to our community, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that,” said Rockwall County Judge David Sweet. “You are all part of the fabric of what makes Rockwall, Rockwall.”
Employees of the Quarter
In other business, the Commissioners Court recognized Employees of the Quarter from the Rockwall County Sheriff’s Office and Rockwall County Justice of the Peace Pct. 3 Mark Russo’s office.
David Jones was recognized as Employee of the Quarter for the Rockwall County Sheriff’s Office, and Brenda Barron earned the honors for her work in Judge Russo’s office.
Congrats to these two individuals!
