Cahuilla veteran honored with Bronze Star Medal

Vietnam War veteran Art Lopez, 64, a member of the Torres-Martinez Desert Cahuilla Indian Tribe, received a special honor on Nov. 14. Decades after serving his country in an exceptional way, he was personally presented with a Bronze Star Medal by United States Marine Corps Brigadier General (Ret.) M.A. Johnson, Jr. at a special luncheon held on the Pala Band of Mission Indians Reservation. The Bronze Star Medal is awarded for bravery, heroism, or meritorious service.
