La Crescenta resident Steve Pierce honored as Veteran of the Year

It was my pleasure to honor La Crescenta resident Steve Pierce has the 43rd District's Veteran of the Year. Steve not only fought in Vietnam with distinction, but he continues to care for our vets in the Crescenta Valley. He deserves the honor for both.  The snippet below is from the June 27, 2013 edition of the Crescenta Valley Weekly.

Assemblyman Mike Gatto honored La Crescenta resident Steve Pierce (left) as Veteran of the Year for the 43rd District at the 2013 Assembly Veterans Recognition Luncheon on Wednesday. A community leader and decorated veteran of the Vietnam War, Pierce’s military and civilian career have each been defined by steadfast service to the country and the community, said  Gatto.
The assemblyman flew Pierce to Sacramento to be recognized at a special luncheon held at the state Capitol.
