Veterans Ceremony

Sunday, November 11, 2018

Join us in honoring those who have served or are still serving in the military.

A special Veterans Day Ceremony will be held at the Falls Church City Veterans Memorial in front of the Community Center (223 Little Falls St.) on Sunday, November 11 at 11 a.m.

The Keynote Speaker for this year's tribute is Shannon Combs-Bennett, Daughters of the American Revolution Regent. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I, the ceremony will include the displaying of a remembrance plaque, presented to the City of Falls Church. Additionally, the Daughters of the American Revolution will present pins to Vietnam Veterans.

Presided over by Master of Ceremonies Harry Shovlin, the Veterans Ceremony features additional remarks and remembrances, a tribute for those missing in action, a wreath presentation and prayer for departed veterans, and performances by the Falls Church City Concert Band.

This program was prepared by representatives of the Greater Falls Church Veterans Council including American Legion Post 130, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Martin-Leppert-Sipes Post 9274, Catholic War Veterans Paul and Jacques Martin Post 1652, Falls Church Daughters of the American Revolution, Northern Virginia WWII Veterans, the Veterans Memorial Committee, and dedicated volunteers under the coordination of the City of Falls Church Recreation and Park Department.
