Mt. Soledad to Host Veterans Day Celebration on November 11, 2019


The annual Veterans Day Ceremony features many presentations and performances including: live music by Marine Band San Diego or Navy Region Southwest Band, the Marine Recruit Depot (MCRD) Color Guard presentation of the colors, MCRD Rifle Team conducting a 21 Gun Salute, and the Missing Man Formation Fly Over conducted by aircraft from the San Diego Salute Formation Team.

The Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial stands high on La Jolla’s Mt. Soledad, offering panoramic views of San Diego, University City, the mountains, the Pacific Ocean and Mexico. It is the only memorial that honors veterans, living or deceased, from the Revolutionary War to the current war on terrorism, with an image of the veteran. More than 5,100 individual veteran tributes, embedded on black granite plaques, are mounted onto 11 curved walls honoring our United States veterans.

This year’s ceremony is Monday, November 11, 2019; 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM, at Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial, 6905 La Jolla Scenic Drive South, San Diego, CA 92037. For more information, visit
