HUMBLE, Texas – Service is who Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw is.
He served with the U.S. Navy SEALs for 10 years, was deployed overseas five times and continued to serve even after he lost an eye in an IED blast.
“God has a different plan for you sometimes, and sometimes you got to walk through that plan,” Crenshaw said during a special Veterans Day ceremony at Humble High school Friday. “When you don’t have an option for doing anything less than moving on and overcoming adversity, then you will overcome … because you don’t give yourself a choice.”
Crenshaw was the guest speaker at the ceremony held Friday meant to honor those who have served – past and present.
The congressman encouraged students to help bridge the gap between civilians and veterans.
“When you do see a veteran, you could say ‘never forget. Never forget,’ and the veteran will know exactly what you’re talking about and you’ll actually connect with them,” Crenshaw said.
Veterans Day was Sunday and is being observed Monday.
