Veterans Day Celebration
with a special program to honor Alhambra's WWII Veterans

 

The City of Alhambra’s annual Veterans Day Celebration will take place on Wednesday November 11, 2015, beginning at 11 a.m. at the Veterans Memorial located at the northwest corner of Alhambra Park, 500 N. Palm Ave., Alhambra 91801. This year's event, which coincides with the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, will include a special program to praise Alhambra's remaining World War II veterans for their service.


While this official holiday was established to commemorate the armistice of World War I, there are still many citizens with vivid remembrances of World War II, and many veterans of those hostilities have earned, and highly deserve, our highest praise and recognition.


The Alhambra City Council, on behalf of the citizens of Alhambra, will commend and thank the following veterans for their World War II military service as the United States marks the war’s end and a truly perilous time in our country’s history. These veterans, and more than 16 million Americans of the greatest generation, who contributed to the war effort, deserve our highest respect and undying gratitude for acting to secure the promise of freedom for future generations of Americans.


World War II honorees include:

 
Mr. Earle Bunker
Mr. Valeriano Hernandez
Mr. Manuel Montoya, Jr.
Mr. Walter R. Romero
Mr. George Blanchard
Mr. Frank Kryszek
Ms. Peggy Moody
Mr. Gill Santilla, Sr.
