eternal-valley-memorial-park-newhall-ca-000Eternal Valley Memorial Park will host the 27th Annual Memorial Day Ceremony which is designed to bring the community together to celebrate, honor and remember America’s heroes who gave their lives in the line of duty.

For the first time, Eternal Valley also will host the stirring “Remembering Our Fallen” memorial photo exhibit.

The photo exhibit will be on display in the reception area beginning Monday, May 18 and will continue through May 30 to honor the 1,000 Southern Californians who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

The Memorial Day Service will be held on Monday, May 25, at 10:00 a.m. at Eternal Valley Memorial Park & Mortuary, 23287 N. Sierra Hwy., in Newhall.

“We are proud to once again provide a pivotal gathering place for our community to come and pay tribute to those brave individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation, men and women who died serving our country,” said Curtis Woods III, general manager of Eternal Valley Memorial Park & Mortuary. “The addition of the Remember Our Fallen photo display will make this year’s memorial service even more poignant as we recollect the dedication and valor of California’s most recent war heroes.”

dignity_eternalvalleyA very emotional exhibit, Remembering Our Fallen, is a stark reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by more than 1,000 fallen from California killed in The War on Terror while wearing our country’s uniform.

The photo exhibit, which includes military and personal photos of each of California’s fallen, is traveling throughout the state.

“We must remember these American heroes and speak their names when we see their family members. We can never forget those who sacrificed everything for our freedom,” said Dr. Mary Hawkins, President, Bellevue University. “This exhibit is created in such a way so it can travel throughout California, offering more people an opportunity to remember California’s fallen.”

The distinctive sound and appearance of the AT-6 planes of the Condor Squadron flying overhead will mark the commencement of the 27th Annual Tribute to veterans, which is organized by the Santa Clarita Valley Veterans Memorial Committee and Eternal Valley Memorial Park.

More than 500 area Brownies, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Boy Scouts will place more than 5,000 American flags on the graves of veterans. Following the ceremony the audience will be invited to the Veterans Memorial Wall for the reading of the more than 850 names inscribed on the wall. Refreshments will be provided.

The Remembering Our Fallen exhibit, and 13 other state exhibits, was created by Patriotic Productions, a non-profit organization whose goal is to complete an exhibit for every state.

The exhibit is supported by Bellevue University, a private, non-profit university in Bellevue, Nebraska.

Founded in 1966, Bellevue University has been a military-friendly school for 45 years. It was an early adopter of distance learning and is now a leader in online education with students in every state and 55 foreign countries, including Afghanistan and Iraq.

  1. My Dad and Grandpa are there! May they always RIP they were the best!!

  2. SCVConcert Band will be providing the music.

  3. Young park says:

    How many committed suicide and are being portrayed as heroes here??! Giving up ALL HOPE is not to be glamorized or defended. They NEED Help!! ( I know of at least 1 who quietly exists in the group. If published stats are to be believed- over half committed suicide because some months more die by their own hands than at the hands of the enemy.) Gotta wonder if who you’re looking at- killed himself.

    • Patrick Young says:

      @Young park, you have a point but Memorial Day weekend is not the time. Much love to those that have passed regardless of circumstance.

    • Ron Baker says:

      Mr. Park, I find your point of view to be very narrow. The men and women who suffer mentally and emotionally to the point of suicide, are just as much heroes. As our society turns its back to the medical and psychological needs of so many vets…..we are in NO position to look down at their last desperate in dealing with the horrors of battle.
