Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans

In an effort to honor our valley’s Vietnam Veterans and give them a long over-due heroes “Welcome Home,”  I was able to partner with AMVETS of CA., Channel 47 and the Grizzlies organization and provide an event that would celebrate and recognize the immense price that these men, women and their families had to sacrifice on our behalf.  The event last year featured our very own alumni and Fresno’s poet laureate Bryan Medina, (who wrote an original poem especially for the event), the Fresno State Bulldog Blitz parachute team, an honorary flyover from the 144th Fighter Wing unit, speeches, and much more! It was such a huge event last year and received overwhelming support from our community leaders, that we were asked to do it again this year.  It will be held Saturday, May 11th at 5:00 pm at Chukchansi Park, followed by the Grizzlies game at 7:05.  I also had the honor of writing an article for the AMVETS of CA publication to share my passion for this event and why it is so near and dear to my heart.  Click the link below and see the article on pages 14-15.
