Cameron County Sheriff Receives Patriotic Employer Award
Three county officials, including the Cameron County Sheriff, have received an award for patriotism on Monday.
Joe Villarreal, Mike Leinart and Sheriff Omar Lucio received the Patriotic Employer Award after they were nominated through the support of the National Guard and Reserve. The three men were chosen by Mark Lucio, who was in Iraq before being employed at the department, and he nominated the men. Lucio states that when he came back from Iraq the men took him in with open arms and made the transition to a new job as easy as possible.
