Memorial Day event

Memorial Day event

Dear Cal Lutheran Community,

As we approach Memorial Day, a annual day of remembrance for those who have died in service to our nation, Ahmanson Veteran Resource Office be hosting a solemn observance at the flagpole on campus. We invite all students, faculty, and staff to join us in honoring the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. We will be hosting this event on Tuesday, May 28th.

Reverend Scott will deliver remarks, providing a spiritual perspective on the significance of Memorial Day and the debt we owe to those who laid down their lives for our country. The event will end with a moment of silence, offering a poignant opportunity to reflect on the immeasurable cost of war and the valor of our fallen soldiers.

As we pay tribute to the memories of these heroes, refreshments including cookies and beverages will be served, allowing for personal reflection as well as shared commemoration with our campus community. This simple act of coming together reinforces the bonds that unite us as Americans and our enduring gratitude for those who served.

Memorial Day represents far more than just the start of summer. It is a day to honor the selfless courage of the men and women who died protecting our way of life. We hope you will join us at the flagpole on campus for this deeply meaningful event.

This event is part of the Veterans Office series.
