Friday, September 25, 2015

(Sacramento) - With confetti raining down and a huge crowd cheering, the three men from Sacramento who stopped an attack on a train in France last month were honored with a parade that ended with a massive rally on the steps of the State Capitol. Assemblyman Ken Cooley (D-Rancho Cordova), who represents the area where the three childhood friendsgrew up, joined Speaker Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego) and others as they praised U.S. Airman Spencer Stone, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler for their bravery and courage. "Today we honor three who in such a moment revealed who they are on the inside and we are in awe," said Assemblyman Cooley. Here's more from the Hometown Heroes Parade in this Assembly Access video.
