State Sen. Susan Rubio, whose brother Brian serves in the U.S. Army, championed the need to take care of servicemen and women once they return home. “No veteran should ever go hungry; no veteran should ever live in the street; and no veteran should ever need medical attention,” she said.

She was also on hand to honor Korean War veteran Geronimo Centeno, who was stationed in Hanford to guard a nuclear plant that produced plutonium during the Cold War. Centeno gave a thumbs up as he received a certificate and later a hug from Rubio, a Baldwin Park resident who served nine years on the local City Council.
