Veterans Day Ceremony planned

Dear Veterans and Community Members,

I invite you to attend the annual Board of Supervisors Veterans Day Ceremony on Tuesday, Nov. 8, at 11 a.m.. The ceremony will be held in the Board’s chamber, 651 Pine St., Martinez.

I am very excited about this year’s program as we will commemorate the 25th Anniversary of Desert Storm.

Our guest speaker this year will be CalVet Secretary Dr. Imbasciani, who served as a field surgeon during Desert Storm. Additionally, we will have a presentation from Live4Box and a poem reading from Vietnam Veteran Bill Nelson.

All Desert Storm Veterans will be provided with a special lapel pin and a book on Desert Storm. Immediately after the ceremony, you are welcome to join us at the Martinez Veterans Hall for light refreshments and an informal meet & greet with Dr. Imbasciani.

 Please invite your family members and friends to also attend, as this event is not just for Veterans. We have designated parking spots available for those with mobility issues. To arrange for ADA parking or seating accommodations, contact James Lyons at (510) 231-8692.


 Nathan D. Johnson
Veterans Service Officer, Contra Costa County
