Memorial Day - Honoring Veterans Service - NNVC - Fernley, NV

The Nevada Veteranís Coalition will be holding a Memorial Service at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley, Nevada May 29th, 2017. The ceremony begins at 11:00am and lasts one hour.

Memorial Day began on May 30th, 1868. The day was commemorated at Arlington National Cemetery as it was originally known as Decoration Day. In 1971, Congress declared that this day of recognition will forever be known as Memorial Day, an American National Holiday, and to be observed on the last Monday in May.

Come join us and remember those veterans who gave, if not a portion or all of their lives, in the defense of this great country of ours.

We expect over 3,000 or more this year, to spend an hour of their time in joining us, as we pay tribute in this ceremony. It is a wonderful patriotic experience, for both young and old Americans. The Maytan Band, conducted by CW4 Alan Pefley, US Army, will be playing prior to the ceremony and will be playing our National Anthem, at the beginning of the event.

Master of Ceremonies;
Fred Wagner: Deputy Director of Nevada Department of Veterans Services.
