How immigrants are redefining 'American' in Southern California

American snapshot: Veterans Day

This isn't the first itme I've posted this photo, but I like it. The banner with this Marine's name was hanging along with many others featuring names of local service members - most of them also with Latino surnames - along the main streets a couple of years ago in Bell Gardens, a city in southeast Los Angeles County.

As for the late civil rights and labor leader Cesar Chavez, he served in the Navy.

Happy Veterans Day.
