Katy, Texas (November 3, 2022) – The Houston Astros have made a concerted effort to honor veterans and this special honor included one of Katy’s own, WWII veteran Thelma Williams, U.S. Women’s Army Corps.
“I have never been to a World Series game, and I can’t believe that I can now take this off my bucket list,” said Williams about the experience.
Williams was recently celebrated as the oldest American Legion member who attended the recent American Legion convention. She continues to be loved among the Greater Houston American Legion and veteran community.
Commander Hector Giron of American Legion Post 654 was instrumental in also arranging for the recognition of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. James Tamborello.
“We are so thankful the Houston Astros and its staff for honoring our greatest generation throughout the 2022 MLB postseason; they have provided over 5,000 tickets for the regular and postseason for veterans in our community this year alone,” said Giron.
Williams served the U.S. Army Corps from 1943 to 1947 and performed her duty in Europe, Germany and Japan.
