Honoring Sgt. Alfonso Martinez for Veteran’s Day

Honoring Sgt. Alfonso Martinez for Veteran’s Day

So often we go to work and forget to talk to other the way that we should. Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Alfonso Martinez has served our council for many years. However, few know he was a Marine before he was a police officer. During our Veteran’s Day celebration, we surprised him by naming him our honoree. We owe a debt of gratitude to Al and all of our veterans; it is because of them we enjoy freedom and democracy.
