Watch ABC 7 Eyewitness New’s Story on Shad Meshad’s Lifesaver Award from the Jewish War Veterans
Jewish War Veterans, the nation’s oldest veteran organization, held its California state convention on June 25 at the Sepulveda VA Care Center in Los Angeles. Some 130 Post Commanders and leaders from throughout the state joined with VA officials and corporate supporters to elect officers and to announce a new annual award unlike any other honor previously presented.
To say the least, it was not an ordinary presentation. Thurston let it all out in telling the crowd “This man saved my life!”
Shad has a wall full of plaques and citations but that moment and the outpouring of respect and love in the room will not be forgotten.
