ROCKY ADDRESSES “VILLAGE VETS”
OCEAN HILLS—76th Assembly District candidate Rocky Chavez addressed members of the Ocean Hills “Village Veterans” Club and accepted a commemorative license plate frame from the group.
Chavez spoke about his service at the California Department of Veterans Affairs – and how his agency worked together with the national veterans department to serve returning soldiers. He also talked about the economic challenges facing veterans in a worsening economy, and how he balanced the needs of aging veterans and younger soldiers who receive the promise of support from a grateful country.
A retired Colonel, Chavez spent more than twenty-eight years as an active Marine and has made veterans issues one of his top campaign priorities.
At the meeting, Chavez also honored the spouses of veterans in the audience and said his own wife, Mary, often said a member of the military includes the spouse and children too.
Officiating at the event were Sgt. at Arms David Neil and Commander Joe Ashby.
