In December of 2010, retired veteran and former Orange County Veterans Service Officer Ken Cavaretta said he would not rest until he saw justice served in the shooting death of fellow veteran Marine LCpl James Whitehead, and it is a cause he has continued to champion into the new year. Cavaretta worked with Whitehead in the months prior to the former serviceman’s death while serving in the county’s Veterans Service office and, according to him, the fun-loving guy he had come to know and care about didn’t deserve the fate that awaited him.
