Press Release

Washington, DC – Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) joined the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Veterans of Foreign War (VFW), Veterans Affairs (VA) Richmond Clinic, Rosenberg Mayor Vincent Morales, Texas State Rep. Phil Stephenson and other local officials to announce a new road sign that will alert local veterans to the Richmond VA Outpatient Clinic (ROPC).

"While driving through Fort Bend County, I noticed a lack of signage for the VA Outpatient Clinic which is available to serve veterans in the Richmond/Rosenberg area,” Rep. Pete Olson said. “In an attempt to help veterans avoid a long drive into Houston, I worked with TxDOT to order a new, larger sign for the VA Outpatient Clinic that serves the Richmond/Rosenberg area.”

Olson with Oliver Avery, the ROPC's administrative officer.

If any veterans in TX-22 need assistance with a claim or receiving benefits from the VA, please reach out to my district office at 281-485-4855 or visit my website,, for more information.
