Honoring Our Veterans

Release Date: 2020-11-11

On Veterans Day and throughout the year, we honor the incredible heroism and sacrifices of those who have served our country. From one proud American, thank you for your service!

Veterans contribute so much during their service in the U.S. armed forces, but it's their service to our nation after they return that we should also recognize. Those who served return to America with invaluable skills and experience they put to use in our communities every day. Long Beach is committed to engaging our veterans and providing them with great resources, in large part thanks to the work of our Veterans Commission and leaders in our community. 

So I join all of you in thanking our veterans and pledge to continue to lift them up as they return home. Long Beach is strongest when our veterans succeed.

Thank you and stay safe,

Mayor Robert Garcia
