The ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. on Monday (May 29) and feature a performance of the national anthem by local resident Jeana Collinsworth and remarks from guest speakers including Livermore Mayor John Marchand and Parks Reserve Force Training Area Command Sergeant Major Eric Soto. 

There will also be a Quilts of Valor presentation to four veterans and the Livermore VFW, along with the Livermore Police Honor Guard, will be honoring fallen service members with a three-rifle volley. 

Other organizations participating in the event include Blue Star Moms, Daughters of the American Revolution, Native Daughters of the Golden West and Boy Scouts of America.
