Veterans Day Celebration

Monday, November 11, 2019

Please join the City of Des Moines in commemorating the 101st anniversary of the ending of World War I, “The War to end all Wars”, in conjunction with honoring all veterans this coming Veterans Day. Some of you may remember that in 1954, President Eisenhower, renamed Armistice Day to the holiday we now celebrate as Veterans Day. This will be Des Moines’ first celebration of many to come and will allow us an opportunity to recognize those who have served our country. This celebration will honor all veterans, both living and posthumous, for their service while appreciating the freedoms we enjoy today. Flag ceremonies, to include: our flag’s posting and retiring, executed by the Des Moines Cub Scout Pack #955 and Federal Way Cub Scout Pack #318. We duly thank them for providing this outstanding service. A program will be available upon entry to this event. Thank you for your participation, and remembrance.
