Veteran's Day Ceremony at City Hall to Honor All Who Served

THANK YOU VETERANS for your service to our country.

Mayor Cynthia Matthews and County Supervisor Bruce McPherson presided over a Veteran's Day ceremony at City Hall to honor and thank all who served and continue to serve. Mayor Matthews gave extra thanks to those who continue their service by working for the city or county in addition to their military career.

The Santa Cruz Police Department and Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard teams participated in the Veteran’s Day ceremony at City Hall on Thursday 11/10/16.

Veterans Day annually falls on November 11. This day is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. Veterans Day honors and thanks all the military personnel who served the United States in all wars.

Honoring the sacrifices many have made for our country in the name of freedom and democracy is the very foundation of Veterans Day.
