WASHINGTON— Yesterday, U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar (TX-28) announced the successful passage of H.R. 1210, a bill he authored to rename the post office located 122 W. Goodwin Street, Pleasanton, Texas, as the "Pleasanton Veterans Post Office.” The bill passed the House and will now move to the Senate.


“Across my district, there are many examples of fine men and women who have honorably served our country,” Congressman Cuellar said. “A great example would be Judge Robert “Bob” L. Hurley of Pleasanton, Texas, who served in the United States Air Force as a medic and eventually rose to the rank of Staff Sergeant.  He was a non-commissioned officer of the US Air Force Academy Cadet Medical Clinic – Medical Records and Appointments Department. He would go on to become President of two different companies and serve his hometown as a councilmember and as mayor, and was eventually elected Atascosa County Judge, where he has served since 2014. We owe our freedom to veterans like Judge Hurley, which is why I am recognizing him with the dedication of this post office.”


Congressman Cuellar also thanked local veteran caregivers for their service to those returning home from duty. “I would also like to take a moment to thank the veterans’ organizations throughout my district for their tireless work in providing the care our veterans need.”
