The City of Mesquite, in partnership with American Legion Post 504 and VFW Post 8785, will host a Veterans Day event to celebrate the bravery and service of our military heroes.
The Veterans Day Celebration will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 11, at Mesquite Veterans Memorial, 425 S. Galloway Ave.
“On the 11th hour, on the 11th day, of the 11th month we will pause to honor America's veterans and celebrate their contributions to our way of life,” said Jay C. Miller, Commander of American Legion Post 504 and master of ceremonies for the event. “Few have given more to our nation than the men and women who have served in our Armed Forces in peace and in war. This includes both the veterans who walked a post, stood on the deck of a great ship, or flew in the skies and the families who provided them so much support.”
This year’s program will include remarks by various community leaders and military veterans, ceremonial activities, musical performances and more.
“All veterans and their families are invited to attend and be recognized for their contributions to our country, and the community is encouraged to attend to honor those who have protected our freedoms,” said Elizabeth Harrell, Director of Parks and Recreation. “We are proud to host this annual event to show appreciation and support for those who have selflessly served our nation.”
