Jamul Indian Village Remembers Fallen
Heroes on Memorial Day
Dear Community Members,
This Memorial Day the Jamul Indian Village remembers our Tribe’s fallen heroes and all the military men and women who lost their lives serving the United States. We have a deep sense of gratitude for those who have defended the US in times of conflict and peace, including those of Native American decent.
The JIV has a long tradition of military service. Throughout the major conflicts over the last century, JIV Tribal Members have bravely volunteered. Among others, those who served include Tribal Member and US Navy Member Bert Comacho who was reported missing in action World War II, and James Mesa who lost his life during the Vietnam War.
The “Warrior Spirit” is a deeply held tradition of protecting land and family. As hunters providing for the Tribe and protecting Tribal lands, warriors were revered. Today the words “veteran” and “warrior” are interchangeable, and the custom of protecting one’s people and homeland has carried over to military service.
For more about our Tribe’s military service, please take a few moments to view this video.

Sharing a similar view of the Southern California mountains as Final Cut Steak & Seafood, LOFT 94 will offer billiards with a kick-back feel against a spectacular backdrop.
“Guests will not be disappointed with LOFT 94,” said Natarajan. “This space will be uniquely Hollywood Casino and San Diego.”
