Lubbock Congressman Jodey Arrington at the game, but not just as a fan.

He presented a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol to Adam Disque, a veteran from Dyess AFB.

"I had the privilege of recognizing him for his service and sacrifice," Arrington said. "He's also a strong advocate for veterans on the Texas Tech campus, he's the President of the Student Veterans Association here. We just wanted to commend him for serving that community and helping make Texas Tech what it is, because we love our men and women in veterans, we love our veterans."

Disque chose to attend Texas Tech because of their veteran friendly staff. He's part of the five year masters of engineering program.

Congressman Arrington presented a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol to Adam Disque,  a 4-year veteran from Dyess AFB, at the Texas Tech basketball game.

At Dyess, Adam was a part of a high performing team that had several opportunities to deploy alongside the B1-B bombers to Southeast Asia. He was given the opportunity to deploy to Al Udeid, Qatar as a Bioenvironmental Engineering Technician,  where he helped record occupational and environmental data to ensure Air Force war fighters have documentation of exposure to hazards they have come in contact with while they completed our nations call.

After completing his enlistment, Adam chose to attend Texas Tech University due to their competitive engineering college and their veteran friendly staff in the MVP office. As an Environmental Engineering student, he is currently a part of the 5 year masters of engineering program.

He is actively involved in Student Veterans’ of America (the largest veteran organization that focuses on student veteran integration into higher education), is the current president of the Veterans Association at Texas Tech, and is also involved in student government as an engineering senator and a member of the diversity committee.
