Forest Lawn’s 62nd annual Veterans Day Celebration will be held virtually for the second year in a row due to the pandemic on Thursday, Nov. 11, at 11 a.m.
Forest Lawn will host the event on its grounds in the Hollywood Hills and stream it via Facebook Live and will honor members of the United States military with a flyover, patriotic music, invocation and benediction, color guard and wreath laying ceremony.
Program highlights include a keynote speech by actress and United States Navy veteran Jennifer Marshall; a presidential proclamation by Kaya Plansker of Leadership Pasadena; a presentation by guest speaker Los Angeles City Controller Ron Galperin; and musical performances by Band of the California Battalion, under the direction of Gary Scott.
“It is our great honor to celebrate and memorialize the service and bravery of the members of the U.S. Armed Forces,” said Rodolfo Saenz, senior vice president of marketing for Forest Lawn. “This year’s virtual celebration will build upon the success of last year’s streaming event and continue the longstanding traditions that have made Forest Lawn’s Veterans Day Celebration so special over the past 62 years.”
