Memorial Day Service, Dana Point

  • Posted on: April 17th, 2018

The VFW Post 9934 and the City of Dana Point will present a beautiful Memorial Day Service on Monday, May 28, in Pines Park, 34941 Camino Capistrano, honoring the sacrifices made by our nation to earn our freedom. The program will start at 10:00 AM.

The program includes the Marine Corps Color Guard from Camp Pendleton. A special part of this program is 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 will include special recognition for veterans of Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Global War on Terrorism. Veterans of these combat operations are requested to register with the Post 9934 office in advance of the program so you may receive appropriate recognition. Please telephone the office at (949) 248-1419, or email
