Ceremonies around the state honor veterans

By The Staff

At 11 a.m. Wednesday in Los Alamos, the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) will conduct a commemorative program to honor the Veterans of the United States. The program will be held at the VFW Building at 1793 Deacon St. and is open to the public. Other community groups will be represented and several speakers and an appropriate patriotic program will be presented.

In Santa Fe, New Mexico Department of Veterans’ Services (NMDVS) Cabinet Secretary John Garcia will present the first winner of the inaugural Farrell Udell Award to an individual for service to veterans at a ceremony in Santa Fe, where Honoring Women Veterans will be the theme of the ceremony and preceding Veteran’s Day Parade.

The parade begins at 10 a.m. and will proceed through downtown Santa Fe on the way to a special 11a.m. commemorative ceremony at the Veterans’ Memorial on the west side of the Bataan Memorial Building (intersection of Montezuma Road and Galisteo Street.)

A Color Guard Unit from the service group, Women Veterans of New Mexico, will lead the parade as well as handle the posting of colors at the ceremony.

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #2951 will then host a luncheon immediately after the ceremony at its Post headquarters one block west of the Veterans’ Memorial at 307 Montezuma Street.
