Today is Veterans Day. There was a very nice ceremony at Pasadena's Memorial Park.
A color guard was comprised of Junior ROTC members from high schools in Pasadena.
Other PUSD JROTC members representing three military branches stood by.
The John Muir High School choir performed.
Congressman Adam Schiff was among the speakers.
I didn't want to disturb this veteran who was having a private moment at the park's Pasadena Vietnam Memorial.
The Civil War Memorial is just north of the Vietnam Memorial.
At exactly 11:11 a.m. there was a flyover by the Condor Squadron of World War II vintage aircraft.
Unfortunately I couldn't stay for the echoing "Taps" by two buglers at opposite ends of the park. This is an extremely moving moment every year but I had to get back to City Hall. If anyone else took a photo of one or both of the buglers, please let me know and I'll post it here with a credit.
