Thank you for contacting me regarding U.S. Army Specialist (SPC) Vanessa Guillen. I appreciate having the benefit of your comments on this important matter.
SPC Guillen honorably chose to serve her country and her senseless murder has raised important and painful questions that must be answered. Following the completion of a criminal investigation, Congress must conduct an oversight investigation into SPC Guillen’s case. It is clear our nation failed to provide the necessary safeguards to protect SPC Guillen, and I am committed to ensuring she and her family receive justice, and a tragedy like this never occurs again. We have a solemn obligation to support and protect members of our Armed Forces, and I believe the opening of a congressional investigation is the first step in doing so.
I appreciate having the opportunity to represent Texas in the United States Senate. Thank you for taking the time to contact me.
