This year marks the 20th anniversary of the dedication of the Fresno City College Veterans Peace Memorial. This special anniversary will be commemorated at the college’s annual Veterans Day Ceremony which will be held this year on Friday, November 8 at 12 p.m. The ceremony is held in front of the Veterans Peace Memorial which was dedicated in 1992.
The overall theme of this year’s ceremony is “coming home” with the idea being that all the people who have contributed to the building of the monument and its upkeep through the years can come home to Fresno City College, not unlike those veterans who have come home after being deployed. These veterans, and veterans of all wars, are especially invited to attend the ceremony. Members of the 1992 organizing committee have been invited and will play special roles in the ceremony.
This year’s keynote speaker is Dr.
