The Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial will mark this year’s Veterans Day with a ceremony honoring our nation’s veterans and commemorating the 50th anniversary of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the Vietnam War.
The event will feature two highly decorated veterans who served in Vietnam: former United States Attorney Robert S. Brewer, Jr. and retired U.S. Navy Commander and former Prisoner of War Henry James Bedinger. As an official partner of the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, an initiative authorized by Congress, the ceremony will honor the service and sacrifice of all veterans and their families, with special recognition paid to Vietnam-era veterans, Prisoners of War, and those still Missing in Action. The public is encouraged to attend this free event. Free parking will be available at the Mount Soledad Presbyterian Church and the French American School.
