City Council Recognition
The City Council will present a Commendation during a regular public meeting to resident military personnel returning from a tour of duty in Iraq. Family and friends will be encouraged to participate in the ceremony.
Military Support Group
Organized in 2008, the group provides on-going support for City of Austin employees serving in our military as well as their families. It facilitates supportive services through a volunteer network comprised of City employees and local residents. Every military service member should be supported before they deploy, while they're gone and when they return.
