The veteran community in Kern County is one of the largest and most supportive. A new gallery, Portrait of a Warrior Gallery, will open in downtown Bakersfield to honor 27 local men who lost their lives on the front lines after 9-11. It was all made possible thanks to donations and sponsors.
The 27 veterans are not the only portraits in the gallery. There will also be a Vietnam room, a resource room, veteran services and many more significant portraits shedding light on those who served this country.
