I'm sure I've missed a few. Thank you to all Pechanga people who have served. And shame on the Pechanga Tribal Council for staining the memory of these fine people above. We should honor their memory (and, for those still living) with our courage to maintain this fight to regain what is rightfully ours.
FEEL FREE TO Add your veteran's name in the comments. THANK YOU TO ALL who served.
