"Vanessa participated in the City's Hire Houston Youth program, which provides young people with internships and job opportunities in the private sector, nonprofit organizations, and government," Turner said.
After graduating from Chavez High School, Guillen enlisted in the U.S. Army.
"On this Fourth of July, as we commemorate our country's freedom and founding ideals, we also honor Vanessa's service in the United States military," Turner said. "The City of Houston stands in solidarity with the Guillen family in their grief and in their search for justice."
Guillen is presumed to have been murdered by a fellow solider after she disappeared from Fort Hood on April 22. A march was held in her honor on Saturday from Discovery Green to City Hall.
