FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Sacramento, CA November 8, 2013

MILITARY NONPROFIT PATRIOTWATCH.COM 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 Lenny Phillips.

From: CA Labor Federation, AFL-CIO:

For the coming year, one of our focuses will be on veterans and labor.  We have brought a veterans program proposal to our board, please see one page description attached.  We are also developing and working to release a big picture policy platform on labor support for veterans.  we want to work with your offices to build this program.  There is good work already done  by other organizations and our unions, we want to aggregate, amplify, and build on it. 

VETERANS AND LABOR – PARTNERS IN SERVICE
2013 Veterans Day Project • www.VeteransandLabor.com


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.
