Last week I had the pleasure of accompanying my friend Bill McDaniel to Sacramento where he was honored as our 33rd Assembly District’s Veteran of the Year. Accompanied by our Assemblyman Jay Obernolte, R-Hesperia, we attended a luncheon with about 70 or so other Assemblymembers, their honorees, family and friends.
What a remarkable group of patriots gathered in one room.
This annual event is sponsored by a number of veterans organizations and private donors and happens right before the Fourth of July each year.
