Bell Gardens recognized residents of the city who served or are currently serving in the US military during a special Veterans Day ceremony held Sunday at Veterans Park. The veterans were each presented with a banner that hung in the City of Bell Gardens as a way to thank them for their service. Over 50 men and woman from the Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force were recognized. One Marine, Roberto Abad, was recognized posthumously. His parents and his son, who was born after Abad was killed in Iraq, accepted his banner. (Pictured) Navy veteran Nancy Arellano, (center) accepts her banner from the city.

In next week’s issue, EGP talks to some of the veterans honored at the ceremony about their experience coming home, and some of the issues they faced which sometimes included a lack of support from the community.
