The most fundamental value in the military is that of, "Leave no one behind." As a former Vietnam veteran, the formation of the Veterans Commission is my way of addressing the needs of veterans in our county.
I was proud that our Board of supervisors established a Veterans Commission for San Mateo County at my request. The recruitment for members is underway. The five-week application period opened on July 17th; it will close on Friday, August 21st at 5:00 pm.
When formed, this nine-member Commission will reflect the diversity of veterans in this county and those who provide services to them. The Board of Supervisors will appoint the nine voting members.
I am pleased to report that 69 applications have been received to date. If you are interested, please apply. There application period will close in two weeks. This commission will undertake important work.
