Pasadena’s Veterans Day Ceremony To Pay Tribute To Those Who Have Served

PASADENA, Calif.—Every year on Veterans Day, Pasadena pauses to honor and remember military veterans. The Pasadena Veterans Day Committee, in collaboration with Vietnam Veterans of America Ch. 446 and American Legion Pasadena Post #13, invite the community to attend this year’s commemoration on Friday, Nov. 11, at 10:30 a.m. at Pasadena City Hall, 100 N. Garfield Ave.

The ceremony’s featured speaker is Colonel Quintin D. Jones, commanding officer of 23d Marine Regiment in San Bruno, CA. Colonel Jones is a native of Memphis, TN, and has commanded units at every level from platoon to regiment. Mayor Victor M. Gordo will also give remarks. The Blair High School band will play the anthems of each branch of the armed forces, and Blair’s Junior ROTC will provide the color guard. In a tribute to Gold Star families in attendance, Pasadena Scottish Pipes & Drums will play "Amazing Grace."

Through the generous sponsorship of Supervisor Kathryn Barger, at precisely 11:11 a.m., the Condor Squadron will do a close formation low-altitude military flyover. Other ceremony activities include a display from the California State Guard Military Museum Command, children’s arts & crafts, free food, and more.
