HOUSTON, TX- Today, Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) received the Lifetime Achievement Award from “Helping a Hero”, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that provides support and specially adapted homes for military personnel severely injured in the war on terror. 

 “I am honored to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from Helping a Hero, an organization that goes above and beyond to help our wounded warriors transition into life off the battlefield. As the son of a WWII veteran and an Air Force veteran myself, I’m proud to receive this award. But the real accolades go to those men and women who fight for nation day after day, year after year. May we do more as a nation to honor their service, remember their sacrifice, and show our gratitude.”
