Lt. General (ret.) Funk highlight’s Carter’s work for our troops

Round Rock – Today, Lieutenant General (ret) Butch Funk, former commander of Ft. Hood and the 3rd Corps, endorsed Congressman John Carter in a radio ad.  In the ad, Funk talks about Congressman Carter’s work to raise the pay of our troops, build a new hospital and increase military readiness.

“I’m thankful to have General Funk’s support and friendship,” said Congressman Carter.  “He knows better than anyone what our troops need, and what we should be doing to strengthen our military.  His council has been invaluable to me, both during his service and in retirement to ensure I can do everything possible to aid our troops, especially the men and women stationed at Ft. Hood.”

Transcript of the ad:

Hi folks, I’m Lieutenant General retired Butch Funk. I’ve had the privilege to serve our country culminating in command of third Corp and Fort Hood twenty – two years ago. We felt so comfortable in this community that we retired here. And have tried to continue to service our community and all the families in this area.


You can’t serve the community without partnering with John Carter, our Congressman. He has fought for and won pay increases two years in a row. Fought for our new Darnell Hospital, Texas A and M – Central Texas, and a massive barracks and motor pool upgrade so necessary to readiness to the force at Fort Hood. Congressman John Carter fights for military men and women and for every person in our communities. I’m honored to call Congressman Carter a friend.
