On Dec. 20, 2022, veterans from Local 11 helped bring Christmas to fellow Los Angeles veterans, including those currently housed at the Los Angeles Veterans Hospital in West L.A.
“As a veteran of the United States Army, I was honored to serve my fellow veterans,” said Local 11 Veteran Committee Chairwoman, Yvonne Rojo, who led the event.
In the military, we learn that having each other’s backs certainly extends beyond military service. We feel an obligation to extend our hand to the men and women who stood by our side while in uniform. Our veterans helped set up and tear down the facilities. In between, we passed out gift boxes and hygiene kits.
A special shout-out to volunteers Jorge Moreno, Eugenio Gatmaitan, Juan Tapia, Louis Amador, Wilson Reyes, Stephen Duronslet, Isaiah Duronslet and Lauren Moreno.
