My dad, a Navy veteran, taught me the importance of paying respects those who have served from an early age. That’s why I’m proud to represent a district with such a diverse and active veterans community. From veteran’s advocacy groups to veteran-owned businesses to veteran’s employment initiatives, Assembly District 63 has an abundance of veterans making an amazing difference.
November is a time to recognize the service and sacrifice of these men and women and their outstanding contributions to our country. However, our homage to veterans must be a year-round commitment.
My colleagues and I in the Assembly are dedicated to ensuring veterans receive the services, benefits, housing, and jobs that they need. Veterans got the money owed to them because we created teams to help clear out backlogs in the federal Veterans Affairs offices. We also supported the California National Guard’s Work for Warriors program, which has connected thousands of veterans with employers.
Veterans are one of the Assembly’s top priorities, and we will continue to advocate for the needs of veterans and their families.
In honor of Veterans Day on November 11th, we’re featuring some of the great people, businesses and organizations in our veterans community.
To all service members and veterans, thank you for your service, and Happy Veterans Day!
