VETERANS DAY is this Saturday. This important annual holiday honors the brave men and women that have served in all branches of the United States Armed Services. Help us celebrate the veterans in our community at the VENTURA COUNTY VETERANS DAY CEREMONY.

Come show your appreciation at the Veterans Day Ceremony at the Ventura County Veterans Memorial (800 South Victoria Avenue, Ventura) on November 11th from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. This FREE event recognizes the bravery and sacrifices made by our nation's veterans, as well as by their families. Several speakers will talk at the event, including Congresswoman Julia Brownley, Captain Chris Janke, USN Naval Base Ventura County Commanding Officer, Ventura County Supervisor Steve Bennett, and Assembly Member and Chair of the California Veterans Affairs Committee Jacqui Irwin.
