The Veterans Committee met in October. Our Political Director Antonio Sanchez addressed us about the mid-term elections and the importance of making our voices heard through voting. Manny Solis provided an informative brief on the refineries. Our own Diana Luna-Roth represented Local 11 Veterans at the Clippers Game and was recognized as the Veteran of the Game for Veterans Day.
I participated at the Rio De Los Angeles State Park where Local 11 and ESSCO Electric helped establish a Veterans Memorial within the park by erecting flagpoles along with the installation of electrical work that supports the lights that shine upon our national flag.
As we prepare to close the year out, I want to give a shoutout to our graduates of the Veterans Electrical Entry Program (VEEP) who will complete their pre-apprenticeship program on December 2. We look forward to them joining our Apprenticeship Program.
Director of Veteran Affairs
