Veterans Day Activities in St. George, Utah

Veteran’s Day

Thank you Veterans 

Words fail and seem so inadequate, but sometimes they are all we have to express our thanks to so many.  Thank you veterans of all generations for the service and sacrifice you and loved ones have rendered.  Thank you.

May those now serving soon return home in peace and safety.

Veterans Honor Park Dedication

A choir from Snow Canyon High School will be providing prelude music at 9:40 a.m. as people gather for the 10 a.m. commencement of the dedication ceremony. Members of the Patriot Guard Riders motorcycle group will ride into the park, officially opening the event.

Tom Cover, the chairman of the committee that oversaw the creation and fundraising for the Veterans Honor Park, will give a short speech, followed by special guest speaker Mayor Dan McArthur.

After the Mayor, the colors will be posted and the Nation Anthem will be sung.

At 11 a.m. seven flags will be raised on 35-foot-high poles, starting from right to left. The flags of each US military branch – Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corp, Merchant Marines and Navy – will be flown. In the center of the flags will be the American Flag, with the iconic black-and-white Prisoner of War/Missing in Action flag raised under it.

Songs of each branch of the armed forces will then be sung, and a prayer will conclude the dedication
