Each year city leaders are joined by those who have served our country, those who continue the fight, and families and friends of veterans and those soldiers currently serving our country to celebrate the lives and actions of our military personnel in protecting this great nation.
Veterans are honored at Veterans Day ceremonies at the Henderson Veterans Memorial Wall adjacent to City Hall. The event includes a presentation of the colors by the Basic High School Marine Corps JROTC, a special musical tribute, and the traditional placement of a memorial wreath at the base of the wall by the American War Mothers, a group of mothers and wives of war veterans. In addition, one of the most moving portions of the event is the reading of the names, commemorating Henderson veterans recently deceased. The names are etched onto the black marble wall to memorialize their contributions in keeping our nation free.
