LANCASTER – Hundreds flocked to Lancaster Cemetery Monday morning for a ceremony to pay tribute to veterans from all wars and conflicts.
The community program focused on the dedication of the newly completed Word War II monument in the Veterans Court of Honor. The monument is a replica of the one that was built in 1945, on the corner of Lancaster Boulevard and Cedar, as a memorial to Antelope Valley residents who served in the armed forces during World War II.
Throughout the 90-minute program, several speakers paid tribute to the more than 700 men and women who are listed on the newly erected Word War II monument– seven of whom were in attendance at the ceremony.
