The State of Texas is seeking information and photos of Medal of Honor recipients. Quoting Gov. Greg Abbott, "Today, I am asking for the public’s help in putting a face to those six Texas heroes.

If you have a photograph of any of the Medal of Honor recipients from Texas, please send an email to the Texas State Preservation Board at CVC.CVC@tspb.texas.gov.

We also welcome further biographical details on these men from the families, veterans’ groups or others devoted to preserving our military’s history."
