Congress honors Sentinels of Freedom

U.S. Rep. Jerry McNerney (D., 11th) introduced a resolution last week honoring the Tri-Valley based Sentinels of Freedom program, commending the organization for its work providing scholarships to veterans severely injured in the line of duty on or after Sept. 11, 2001. The program helps these veterans enroll in school, find and maintain a job, and obtain housing.

"I'm proud to honor Sentinels of Freedom," said Rep. McNerney. "This group deserves strong commendation and recognition for their hard work on behalf of the brave men and women who have sacrificed greatly for our nation."
