A Veterans Day Message from La Mirada Mayor Ed Eng

La Mirada Mayor Ed Eng

 October 27, 2021

To all the veterans past and present, I would like to convey my heartfelt thanks to those who have answered our country’s call.  We are forever grateful to heroes like you.  In     La Mirada, we will continue to honor our veterans and remember the bravery, courage, and sacrifices given for the freedom we enjoy today.

In honor of Veterans Day, I kindly invite you to join us on Monday, November 8 at the     La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts for the City’s annual Salute to Veterans event.  Doors open at 6 p.m. and the program begins at 7 p.m.

This event will include displays of military memorabilia, information on veterans’ resources, guest speakers, a military banner retirement ceremony, a patriotic ceremony with the presentation of colors by the local VFW, and a special performance of the “The American Soldier,” a powerful one-man show revealing the experiences of the American soldier throughout history.

The City of La Mirada continues to honor and recognize active members of the Armed Forces through the Military Banner program. Eighty banners are presently displayed along Rosecrans Avenue with names of La Mirada men and women who are on active duty.  Furthermore, a permanent flag memorial saluting our military personnel is located on Rosecrans Avenue.  Lastly, the military banner retirement ceremony will recognize men and women who have recently completed their military service.  They include Clint Bales, Sara Burchill, Cynthia Cano, Shaun Constantino, Andrew Dominguez, Juan Herrera, Sean Hollenbeck, Tiffany Lamptey, Max Nunley, Josue Pedroza, Riley Serros, Joshua Stinson, William Thomas, and Marcus Vargas.

To honor La Mirada residents who gave their lives in service to our country, the names of 28 residents who paid the ultimate sacrifice are proudly engraved in the Eternal Flame Memorial located at the La Mirada Civic Center.

 

 

On behalf of the City of La Mirada, we thank all veterans who fought valiantly to protect our great country.  Your heroic deeds will never be forgotten.

Sincerely,

Ed Eng

La Mirada Mayor
