History of the Home
The Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home in Floresville was the one of the first four State Veterans Homes built after passage of the enabling legislation in 1997. The home is named after former Marine, Vietnam Veteran and Bronze Star recipient Frank M. Tejeda. Tejeda also served in the Texas Senate and in Congress and was a longtime veterans advocate responsible for obtaining a VA outpatient clinic for Bexar County.
Commissioner David Dewhurst dedicated the home on December 2, 2000.
