The City of Santa Monica will join the Los Angeles Army Recruitment Battalion and the California Army National Guard for a Veterans Day commemoration on the deck of the Santa Monica Pier.

A limited number of seats will be available for in-person participation for the celebration, taking place Thursday, November 11 at 11 a.m. in the North Beach Lot 1, 1550 PCH.  The event will also live streamed on the City’s YouTube.  

The program will include:

  *   Posting of the colors
  *   National anthem
  *   Remarks from Mayor Sue Himmelrich and Councilmember Gleam Davis
  *   Remarks from General Curtis Taylor, U.S. Army
  *   Future soldiers swearing in ceremony

“It is our great fortune to have so many brave men and women in service to our country. They deserve our recognition all year with special honors paid on Veterans Day,” said Mayor Sue Himmelrich. “We proudly join the U.S. Army in this tribute and ask the community to join us virtually to recognize and honor the veterans in our lives and across Santa Monica.”

For 21 years, the five pillars of the Veterans Memorial in Palisades Park honor each branch of the military, the Army, the Navy, the Marines, the Air Force and the Coast Guards. 

“The past year and a half have been extremely challenging for our military veterans with the continued pandemic and the fallout from Afghanistan. On this Veterans Day, we challenge you to help us make them feel extra special by showing gratitude and honor for their service,” said Sonki Hong, Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army.
