Laura Koerner reappointed, Charles “Chuck” Wright appointed to Texas Veterans Commission


Governor Greg Abbott has reappointed Laura Koerner as Chairwoman of the Texas Veterans Commission, and appointed Charles “Chuck” Wright to the Commission.


“I am honored to continue serving the interests of veterans and their families in the Lone Star State,” said Chair Koerner, pictured. “This state is home to more veterans than any other state because the State of Texas invests in services and benefits to those who served in the Armed Forces.”

Laura Koerner of Fair Oaks Ranch was appointed to the Texas Veterans Commission in 2018, and then as Chairwoman in 2020 by Governor Abbott. Koerner is a project manager, engineer, and a Councilwoman for the City of Fair Oaks Ranch. She served in the United States Navy as a Surface Warfare (Nuclear) Officer onboard USS MAHAN (DDG 72) and USS ENTERPRISE (CVN 65), earning 2 Navy Commendation Medals and a Navy Achievement Medal.

“I am excited to advocate for the 1.5 million veterans throughout Texas as a TVC Commissioner,” said Chuck Wright. “The agency is filled with many dedicated veterans who strive to continuously improve our services to all Texas veterans, their families and survivors. This role will allow me to continue this work serving veterans and paying it forward.”
