Assemblymember Monique Limón Adjourns in Memory of Patrick Armando Vega

Friday, April 6, 2018

(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Monique Limón  (D-Santa Barbara) adjourned in memory of Oxnard resident Patrick Armando  Vega during a recent Assembly floor session. Vega dreamed of one day  becoming a Marine. Since the tender age of 3, he would dress up in  military clothes and promise his friends in high school that he would  one day join the service. Last October, he finally enlisted.  Unfortunately, his dream did not come to fruition. “He passed away from  cardiac arrest less than two weeks after arriving for boot camp at  Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego,” said Limón. “He was only 21  years old; was a very driven young man and a great friend to many in the  community.” To hear more about Mr. Vega’s young life, watch this Assembly Access video.
