A local lawmaker is giving thanks to the men and women of Texas Task Force One.
Congressman Kevin Brady presented the task force with a congressional commendation Thursday for their efforts during and after Hurricane Ike.
Many of Brady's constituents are still repairing their homes that were damaged in the storm.
Task Force One performed over 9,000 search and rescue operations, while assessing over 28,000 structures and homes.
Some team members were there as recently as this past weekend to assist in recovery efforts.
