American Legion Post 149 in Escon­dido Saturday night held a tile dedica­tion ceremony at its Honor and Re­membrance Wall.

The wall includes tiles of people who have passed away and people who are still alive but are of special significance to members of the post. The tiles represent individuals who proudly served their country, selfless­ly, never searching for fortune or fame. It also serves as a place where future generations can continue to gather to honor these men.

On Saturday night four tiles were added for people who are important to member John Perez, including Rudy Herrera, his brother-in-law; Cruz “Spaghetti” Perez, his late brother; Tony Perez, brother and G. William Hall, brother in law.

It was also a special day for John Perez because it was his 70th birthday.
