LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Dave Robertson, R-Grand Blanc, welcomed constituent Jerry Sabulej to the Michigan Capitol on Wednesday.
Sabulej is a United States Marine Corps veteran from Davisburg, and he and his wife Pauline were in Lansing as Robertson’s guests for a lapel-pinning ceremony with other Vietnam veterans.
“Lapel pins are meant to symbolize the honorable service of those who fought in the Vietnam War,” Robertson said. “I am honored to present Mr. Sabulej with his lapel pin, and I certainly believe his service is worthy of recognition in this chamber. It was quite a humbling experience to be able to participate in this important event.”
Robertson and Sabulej were joined by state Sen. Mike Kowall, R-White Lake, during Wednesday’s ceremony. Kowall is a partner with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration Commemorative Partner Program and is in charge of pinning ceremonies for the Michigan Senate.
