After suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) most of his life, Vietnam veteran, Samuel Luna, attended a Vets Journey Home retreat in Maryland in 2005; the weekend changed his life. As a way to give back, he decided to start Vets Journey Home Texas, Inc., which then became Texas for Heroes, Inc. in 2015.
Texas for Heroes, Inc. is a tax exempt non-profit 501(C)(3) organization based in Katy, Texas (greater Houston area).
The founding principal of Texas for Heroes, Inc. has been expressed in the words of one of America's greatest veterans - George Washington:
"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive veterans of early wars were treated and appreciated by our nation."
