Two very special events on Saturday, Nov. 9. First will be the 10th Anniversary Ceremony at 11 a.m.
Those who have been involved with the AV Wall over the past 10 years are encouraged to attend this ceremony, which will recognize past host cities and sponsors. Every guest will receive a commemorative 10th Anniversary AV Wall pin. Then at 9 p.m. that evening, the annual Candlelight Memorial Walk will honor the 76 fallen service members from the Antelope Valley whose names are engraved on the memorial. For those who would like to honor a fallen or passed on service member of any Military branch at the Candlelight can do so by inquiring onsite.
The official programming will conclude with a Veterans Day Ceremony on Monday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. The Ceremony will include patriotic performances by Rat Pack Ricky and The Air National Guard Band of the West Brass Quintet. The Guest Speaker will be Brig. Gen. E. John Teichert, Commander, 412th Test Wing, Edwards Air Force Base. Every veteran in attendance will receive an appreciation pin and there will be a special 50th Commemorative Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin Presentation.
Taps will be played nightly at 9 p.m. while the AV Wall is on display.
