In honor of Veterans Day, join us on Wednesday, November 10th at 7 pm for a virtual tour of one of the most unique Veterans Memorials in America. GQHF Volunteer Charlotte Perry will discuss the Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial, which honors veterans, living and deceased, from the Revolutionary War to the current global “War on Terror.” Black granite plaques include a picture of the veteran with a brief summary of their military experience.
Currently there are over 3,500 veterans honored on the Memorial Walls. Five new walls were recently constructed and will accommodate an additional 2,400 plaques. Honorees include Presidents, twelve Medal of Honor Recipients, Generals, celebrity veterans and many other veterans with names that are not familiar, but who proudly served our country helping preserve the freedoms we enjoy as Americans.
