Rep. Aguilar Hosts Commemoration Ceremony for Inland Empire Vietnam Veterans  

As part of the national Vietnam Veterans Commemoration, Rep. Pete Aguilar hosted a commemoration ceremony for Inland Empire Vietnam War veterans.

In advance of the National Vietnam War Veterans Day on March 29, Rep. Aguilar presented Vietnam Veterans with the Vietnam Veterans Lapel Pin provided by the Department of Defense.

“The veterans honored at this event, and the thousands of Inland Empire veterans who served in Vietnam, have made extraordinary sacrifices for our country,” said Rep. Pete Aguilar. “I’m glad to have hosted this commemoration ceremony to recognize their patriotism and dedication, and I will continue to fight on behalf of the veterans in our community to ensure they have access to the benefits they’ve earned.”

“We appreciate Congressman Aguilar coming out to VFW Post 6476 in Colton to recognize our Vietnam Veterans. Ceremonies like this one reassure our Vietnam Veterans that their service to the nation is not forgotten,” said Bernie Moyeda, Commander of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6476, Colton, CA, and Vietnam Veteran.

Last year, Rep. Aguilar’s bill, the Wounded Warrior Access Act, was signed into law. This bill streamlines veterans’ benefits claims process, so veterans can access their benefits more easily and in a timely manner.
