Members of the community are invited to join City officials, City staff members, and representatives of the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station and the Los Angeles County Fire Department in honoring our local veterans.

This year’s theme is “Veterans and Their Battle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).” During the program, members of the West Hollywood City Council will recognize those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Representatives from local veterans’ organizations and the UCLA ROTC Air Force Color Guard will participate. Matthew Shepherd, a veteran who served in the United States Navy, will speak about challenges the he and other veterans are facing as they acclimate back into society.

This community event is free and open to the public. Public parking is available nearby at the Kings Road Municipal Parking Structure, located at 8383 Santa Monica Boulevard. In the event of rain, the ceremony will be moved to Plummer Park.
