World War II Veteran, David C. Gan joins the Cal Veteran’s group for his first Veteran’s Day Parade in San Francisco. Gan graduated from UC Berkeley in 1956 with a degree in Public Health. Prior to Cal, Gan was an infantryman in the US Army serving in Germany from 1943 to 1952. While serving in the military, he was injured but chose to re-enlist despite a permanent disability. Today, Gan is an advocate for disabled veterans and hands blue flowers out to strangers as a reminder of the sacrifices that disabled veterans have endured for their country.
