Veterans Day Ceremony

- This event has passed.
Join the St. George Lighthouse Association, the SGI Veterans Reveille Group, and the 106th American Legion in honoring our military veterans; that is, all persons who served in the United States Armed Forces.
The guest speaker will be Colonel Christopher Peters, who serves as the 325th Fighter Wing Vice Commander at Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida. Colonel Peters will speak on the rebuilding efforts of Tyndall Air Force Base after Category 5 Hurricane Michael passed over the base on October 10, 2018.
As the Installation Vice Commander, Colonel Peters supports the Commander in leading the 23,000 Airmen, civilians, contractors, and families who call Tyndall AFB home. The 325th Fighter Wing hosts 19 tenant units from multiple Major Commands. The 325th Fighter Wing flies the F-22, one of the most dominant aircraft in the world, and sustains ready forces for worldwide deployment in support of combat operations.
Singer, songwriter and storyteller Billy Dean will perform the National Anthem during the program and perform a few songs at the program’s conclusion.
Refreshments will be served after the ceremony, and the lighthouse will be open to everyone with free climbs offered to all veterans. We encourage you to attend as we honor all veterans and fill Lighthouse Park for this significant event.
