Veterans and Remembrance Day Observed by American Legion and Navy League of PV

Dennis Rike - American Legion Post 14
October 27, 2015


The Navy League of Vallarta and The American Legion Post 14 invite Americans, Canadians and Mexican Citizens to pay tribute to those who gave their lives so the world could live in peace.

Veterans Day is an official United States holiday which honors people who have served in armed service also known as veterans. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11. It coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the end of World War I.

Remembrance Day (also known as Poppy Day or Armistice Day) is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth countries since the end of World War I to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. This day, or alternative dates, is also recognized as special days for war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918.

We will meet at Steve's Sports Bar (Post 14 Hqd.) on Wednesday, November 11 at 10:00 am with coffee, pastries provided and breakfast available for purchase. We will leave at 10:40 to walk to Lazaro Cardenas Park (Romantic Zone) for the service.
