The Ventura Townehouse has been home to many Veterans and spouses over the years. They have enjoyed the company of Veterans from every branch of the armed services, including Veterans of WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Regardless of service type, rank, or role, they sincerely appreciate the service of all Veterans. On November 11th they celebrated Veterans Day in a big way.
The annual Veterans Day ceremony began with color guards, 30 minutes of patriotic music by the Ventura British Brass of 27 pieces, and a program at the front garden by the flag pole.
A bagpipe procession, to a wreath-laying at the flagpole concluded the commemoration, followed by the viewing of Veterans posters made by their Intergenerational Group; Pacifica High School Staff & Students.
Personal recognition was given to the Veterans of Ventura Townehouse who spoke about their call to duty. The Townehouse thanked all Veteran’s and all Veteran’s families for their sacrifice and dedication to the United States and its citizen’s by giving us the right and privilege to freedom in our homeland.
