On Tuesday, February 26, 2019, the City and County of San Francisco Board of Supervisors set aside some time during their regularly scheduled meeting to recognize city residents in honor of Black History Month.
District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani honored four formerly homeless veterans who live at our Veterans Academy in the Presidio and two Swords to Plowshares staff members at the event.
The following veterans were recognized during this special Black History Month commemoration:
- John Baker, U.S. Army
- Michael Crane, U.S. Air Force
- Richard Hollingsworth, U.S. Army
- Robert Scott, U.S. Army
- Kenyon Wingo, U.S. Army (Swords to Plowshares staff)
We’d like to thank Supervisor Catherine Stefani for the invitation and for honoring our veterans’ military service at the event. All our veterans and staff members were absolutely thrilled by the experience and appreciated the recognition. We truly appreciate this support for our organization and all the veterans we serve!
