Happy Veteran's Day to ALL who Served, including those Who Pechanga Disenrolled

Pechanga has many veterans on their list, many of them Hunter's.

My father, who Pechanga still credits as Pechanga people on their website was a decorated war veteran, awarded the Bronze Star and the Army commendation medal for heroism in Vietnam, is now considered, NOT PECHANGA.

Of course, he always knew he was, helping to build a cabin on the rez in 1957. For you history buffs, that was pre-casino, pre-cornfield (a la Macarro) and pre-Gloria Wright, who came to the rez in 1972. She's one who keeps her brother from his rightful place in the tribe.

Pechanga, shame on you, for disavowing your veterans and Fathers, and their descendents.

OP,

Thank you for posting this. I was unaware that my father's service to our country as well as my Uncle (your father) was being touted on their website. My father took great pride in the construction of that cabin, back when many of these people had no tie to the land. I echo Creepers sentinments and thank those that have and continue to serve our country. Happy Veterans Day.

Hunters have had ties to the land at Pechanga since BEFORE Paulina received her 20 acre land grant in 1895.

Corny Macarro, knows this.

Thank you, Hunter veterans for bringing honor to the tribe, where others bring dishonor, shame and crime
