In the spirit of bipartisanship, Joseph Kopser is offering Roy the following photos from Kopser’s 20 year career in the Army to use for free, so that Roy will not have to spend any more money on stock photos.

“As I’ve said many times, I’m committed to working across the aisle to solve problems,” Kopser said. “Even if it means saving my opponent money.”

Kopser graduates from the Army Ranger School, a rigorous leadership training course that tests the limits of soldiers’ endurance.In Iraq, Kopser wrote home to organize a clothing drive to keep Iraqi children warm. Here, he poses with one of the children who received shoes from the drive.

“I welcome the use of these, and other photos available at,” added Kopser. If these don’t work for Chip, “I’m happy to introduce him to some of the 69,000 veterans and their families who live  in TX 21, including at my VFW Post 3377, or from Bunker Labs in San Antonio and Austin, where I mentor fellow veteran entrepreneurs.”


Joseph Kopser is a 20-year Army veteran, technology entrepreneur, husband and father of three daughters, and Democratic nominee for Congress in TX-21. His candidacy is driven by concern for the future of our country and the path Washington leadership is taking. He is building a new coalition of voters who believe the values, priorities, and expectations of Texas’ 21st congressional district will serve as a model of service and representation for Texas and the United States.
