VETERANS AND LABOR – PARTNERS IN SERVICE
2013 Veterans Day Project •
Those who serve our
country in uniform risk their lives to defend and protect
the freedoms we all value. But far too often, our nation’s
veterans don’t receive the support they’ve earned or the
services they need when returning home. California’s labor
unions are taking the lead to change that.
“Labor and Veterans – Partners in
Service” is a new project sponsored by California unions
that spearheads helping veterans on three fronts: providing
volunteer service, opening doors to good jobs and a special
Veterans Day event to honor our heroes for their service.

VOLUNTEERS PRAISE LABOR UNIONS AND LEGISLATRORS
AT CAPITAL EVENT TODAY
This morning on the North steps of the state
capital, “Labor and Veterans – Partners in
Service” was officially launched. The project is
sponsored by California unions that spearhead
helping veterans on three fronts: providing
volunteer service, opening doors to good jobs
and a special Veterans Day event to honor our
heroes for their service.
Leading off the speakers at the press event was
Emcee Art Pulaski, Secretary-Treasurer and Chief
Officer of the California Labor Federation
followed by Vietnam veteran Nick Berardino and
US Marine Corp veteran Sean Sargeant. Assembly
members Dr. Richard Pan, Ken Cooley and Roger
Dickinson, all from the Sacramento area, spoke
passionately about the needs of area veterans
and their families.
"I am rarely impressed by photo ops and press
events at our state capital" said Dave Jenest,
CEO and webmaster of a local military family and
veteran charity. "When we received the
invitation from Assemblymember Dr. Richard Pan’s
staff I realized were hearing from someone who
knows what he's talking about. His service as
Vice Chair of the Assembly Committee on Veterans
Affairs and in years past while a medical
student, working at a VA hospital, he brings
real time issues to the table," Jenest said.
In concluding his comments about the event
Jenest also said "Listening to the veterans who
spoke and with our nonprofit's mission including
law enforcement officers as well, Dr. Pan's
support for Sacramento City Police and the
Sacramento County Sheriff, many of whom are
veterans, convinced us to help any way our group
of volunteers can."
Jenest was referring specifically to veteran
Sean Sargeant who works as a probation officer
now. The group was equally impressed by Marine
veteran and President of SEIU Local 1000 Yvonne
Walker, Vietnam veteran and Chairwoman for CAL
AMVETS, Lorraine Plass and last but hardly
least, Rick Davis, US Navy vet and Business
Manager, Ironworkers Local 118.
PDN volunteers attending today’s event and
working on others this weekend included RN, BSN,
LNC, TNS (Retired) Ruthi Wolfson, SEIU 1000 Shop
Steward Darrell R Parker and Vietnam veteran
