Governor Abbott highlighted Texas' longstanding support for military families and missions, emphasizing the significant economic contributions of the state's 15 major military installations. The $114 billion impact on the Texas economy and the support of over 622,000 jobs underscore the vital role these installations play in national defense.

TexAmericas Center, situated on the former Lone Star Army Ammunition Plant and the active Red River Army Depot, will allocate the grant towards enhancing its logistics capabilities. This strategic investment aims to further solidify TexAmericas Center's position as a crucial hub for military-related activities and contribute to the overall success of military missions in the region.
