  • Veterans Day at U.S.VETS – Long Beach

    On November 8, U.S.VETS – Long Beach held its annual “Honoring Those Who Serve” luncheon. Over 300 guests attended the signature event, along with U.S.VETS staff and clients. This year’s honoree was Rear Admiral (ret.) Mark Guadagnini, a Long Beach native, who graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1980. As a Navy fighter pilot, he operated from 12 different aircraft carriers participating in combat Operations Desert Storm, Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. Please enjoy this picture gallery from the event: U.S.VETS – Long Beach also participated in the Veterans Day Parade on Saturday, November 9. In addition to the 18 veterans who marched in the parade, U.S.VETS also set up a booth at the park so people could get more information about the site and the services provided there. On Veterans Day itself, U.S.VETS – Long Beach hosted a BBQ sponsored by Huntington Beach Elks Lodge. Special guest Mayor Bob Foster joined over 200 veterans as we celebrated and honored those who served.
