The Judge Harry Pregerson
Public Service Award
for Service to Veterans
The Judge Harry Pregerson Public Service Award honors individuals who make outstanding contributions to the veterans community and whose accomplishments can be viewed as models of public service within and outside the work environment. The Award recognizes individuals who exhibit the highest standards of excellence, dedication, and accomplishment over a sustained period of time. 2013 is the inaugural year of this award.

About the Honorable Harry Pregerson

More than anyone else, Judge Harry Pregerson is responsible for the existence of U.S.VETS. In 1992, determined to help serve the huge population of homeless veterans, he formed U.S.VETS’ first Board of Directors. When he saw a particular building in Los Angeles, Judge Pregerson pointed at it and said, “I want that building to be a home for homeless veterans.” He brought together the people who could make it so, and that building became U.S.VETS’ first site.

Judge Pregerson served as a 1st Lieutenant in the Marine Corps from 1944 to 1946. He fought in the South Pacific during World War II, where he was severely wounded during the Battle of Okinawa. The battle has been referred to as the “typhoon of steel” referring to the ferocity of the fighting, and the intensity of kamikaze attacks from the Japanese defenders.

After the war, he attended University of California, Los Angeles (1947) and earned his law degree from the University of California, Berkeley Boalt Hall School of Law. He was appointed to the Ninth Circuit in 1979 by President Jimmy Carter.

During his confirmation hearings to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, he made the front pages when the Senate Judiciary Committee asked what he would do if he faced a choice between following the law or his conscience. “My conscience is a product of the Ten Commandments, the Bill of Rights, the Boy Scout oath, and the Marine Corps Hymn,” he said at the time. “If I had to follow my conscience or the law, I would follow my conscience.”

Judge Pregerson has dedicated much of his life to helping underserved members of society, using his influence, and considerable persuasive powers as a staunch advocate for the homeless — particularly veterans and families. U.S.VETS is proud to honor him at our 20th Anniversary Celebration.
