Voters Send War Hero to Congress

The choice of voters in a Central Texas congressional district, Olin “Tiger” Teague began his 32-year career in the U.S. House of Representatives on August 24, 1946.

A graduate of Texas A&M class of 1932, Teague took part in the Normandy landing and six months later was the second most decorated American soldier of World War II behind Audie Murphy.  An advocate for veterans of all wars, poor health forced him to retire after 16 terms.
