Governor Abbott Releases Video Resource For Active-Duty Military And Spouses Transferring To Texas
Austin, TX (STL.News) Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Military Preparedness Commission today released a video resource for active-duty military and their spouses to increase awareness of the services offered by the State of Texas to military members and families who are about to transfer or have transferred into the state.
The Military Spouse video at https://youtu.be/XxThmP-TtgU provides information on employment, education, skills development and health services offered by the Texas Workforce Commission, Texas Veterans Commission, Texas Division of Licensing and Regulation, Texas Education Agency, and Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
“In Texas, we proudly support our military service members and work to foster a welcoming environment for all military families stationed here,” said Governor Abbott. “That’s why my office is partnering with state agencies to assist military families with their transition to the Lone Star State. We have a large network of programs to help military spouses with finding employment, transferring occupational licenses from other states, and accessing education programs and other services. I encourage military families to take advantage of all the resources Texas offers those who serve and the families who stand by their side.”
Texas is home to approximately 226,000 Department of Defense military and civilian personnel and their families, as well as 15 major military installations and the headquarters of Army Futures Command.
