San Antonio Veteran, 91, honored for service

William Joseph Hovestadt Jr. received flag, letter from Sen. John Cornyn

A 91-year-old San Antonio veteran was honored Tuesday night for his service to our country.

The South Texas Triumph Association honored William Joseph Hovestadt Jr. for his service in Europe during World War II.

Hovestadt was given a flag that flew over the United States Capitol and a letter from Sen. John Cornyn, thanking him for his service.

"I am just so amazed.  I don't know what to say. I haven't felt this proud of myself I guess, in a long, long time.  I appreciate this very much," Hovestadt said.

Hovestadt remains an active member of the South Texas Triumph Association.
