Memorial Day Celebration and Dedication Ceremony
Small Private Ceremony 2021

We truly hope  you have all made it through this very challenging time  without problems.

With the lifting of some of the restrictions, we are now able to proceed with a small private ceremony limited to 100 people for those heroes newly added to our Wall of Honor and their families. We wish we could make this ceremony open to the public, but with the restrictions on size, we must keep it private to make sure the new veteran's families can be included.

We are hoping to have a much larger ceremony as soon as restrictions ease up enough to allow it, maybe by summer! We will keep you posted on this.

We miss you all so very much and look forward to the day we can all meet again and show our love for each other and the United States of America.

Memorial Day Celebration Monday, May 26, 2014

Hundreds gathered for our 4th Annual Memorial Day Celebration in the Alpine Community Center Park.

Master of Ceremonies Herb Cawthorne began the program with some background on how the Wall of Honor was created. After an opening song by soloist Peter Hastings, veterans were honored by a flyover of refurbished World War II biplanes flown by the Buecker Squadron.

A patriotic mini-concert by the San Diego Festival Chorus was next.

Chairman Dan Foster gave thanks to our veterans on behalf of the Alpine Veterans Wall of Honor Committee and Retired U.S. Congressman Duncan L Hunter assisted Dan in making a special presentation honoring SGT Forrest Dan Cauthorn who gave his life to his country in Iraq.

The Alpine Kiwanis cook shack was on hand at serving meal deals.
