The 20th Century Veterans Memorial will hold a Veteran's Day ceremony at 2 p.m. Nov. 11. The speaker will be Navy veteran Cal Stratton, the president of the board of directors of the memorial. Jim Beckius, former board president, will be honored during the program for his service to the development of the memorial. Secretary Wilma Salisbury will be the emcee and Howard Gebhardt will give the invocation and benediction.
The memorial has space for 1,900 more memorial bricks in the Walk of Honor, adding to the 3,000 on display. You may purchase a brick to honor a veteran of any period in history. Veterans of the same family will be grouped together.
