(Nominated by Wilfredo Santos-Rivera)

John Pettyjohn is a retired Marine Corp Veteran, Korean Era, Chosen Few, who served his country and has been serving Veterans and their families since he left the service. I have seen him go beyond the call of duty time and again. He is an advocate for human rights “por excelencia.” I am proud to submit his name for the OKUHRA human rights award.

On December 10th, the Oklahoma Universal Human Rights Alliance will honor human rights heroes from around our great state. A recognition program will take place at the State Capitol. John Pettyjohn will be among those to be honored. More information about the program can be found here: “Celebrate Human Rights.”
“Everyone has the right of equal access to public service in his country.”
