This Memorial Day, Take A Moment
 
This Memorial Day, the Texas Veterans Commission is asking you to take a Moment of Remembrance, at 3 p.m. on May 26 for one minute. The Moment does not replace the traditional Memorial Day observances, but it is intended to be a unifying act of remembrance for Americans of all ages to help reclaim Memorial Day for the noble and sacred purpose for which it was intended—to honor those who died in service to our Nation.
 

 
Along with your thoughts and memories on this holiday, we encourage you to share the photo above and hashtag #TexasTakesAMoment with your friends and family. Through public discussion about Memorial Day and the National Moment of Remembrance, we can inspire more people to "take a moment" and come together as Texans to pay a collective tribute and lift up the lives of these heroes.

Office Hours features Hazelwood Act
On May 28 at 2:00 pm, the Texas Veterans Commission will continue the webinar series, “Office Hours,” that features state and federal education benefits and other education-related topics. This webinar will focus on the Hazlewood Act, a state of Texas education benefit.
 
This free webinar is hosted monthly and provides student Veterans, potential student Veterans, and family members of Veterans the opportunity to receive information on education benefits and ask questions directly to a subject matter expert.

Student Veteran wins science scholarship
On April 25, Marine Combat Veteran and University of North Texas (UNT) student David Smith received the first TDF Foundation Veterans Scholarship for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). In 2014, the TDF Foundation launched the Veterans Scholarship Initiative, which awards a $3,000 scholarship to a Veteran studying one of the STEM sciences across the country.
 
Smith, who is a biology and chemistry double major, is conducting research about traumatic brain injury, and created a Veteran transition program for first year Veterans that will be implemented at UNT.
