Congresswoman Pelosi joined the San Francisco Girls Chorus for their 40th anniversary season gala in the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco on March 15th.
My office recently assisted a constituent with obtaining copies of his archived service records through the California Army National Guard. He had contacted our office because he never received records showing his completion of service and honorable discharge. This hindered his employment application process with the San Francisco Passport Agency, which requires proof of his honorable discharge. Additionally, he was unable to reach his former unit regarding this matter. Therefore, our office contacted the California National Guard on his behalf and conveyed the details of his situation. As a result, my office was able to obtain his necessary paperwork so that he could continue with his employment application.
