The VFW Post 9934 and the City of Dana Point will present a beautiful Memorial Day Service on Monday, May 27, in Pines Park honoring the sacrifices made by our nation to earn our freedom. The program will start at 10:00. The entrance at Pines Park for the event is 34941 Camino Capistrano in Capistrano Beach.
Marine Aircraft Group-39, from Camp Pendleton, will send a Color Guard to participate in the ceremonies. A special part of this program will be the “Boots and Rifle” ceremony conducted by officers of Post 9934, and the bugle call, TAPS played by that master of the trumpet, David Longoria.
If you have never attended this special Memorial Day Service, it is very moving. It is 90 minutes out of your holiday weekend that really brings home how fortunate we are to be Americans.
We encourage you to share this special service overlooking the blue Pacific with your children, your parents, and your friends. Come and pay respect to those who gave so much so we could enjoy the privileges we have.
This Memorial Day Service for 2019 will include special recognition for those family members who support members of the military services while they are deployed to combat operations.
