The Paul Alaniz, Jr. American Legion Post 28 is hosting and the Corpus Christi Mayor’s Committee for Veterans Affairs is sponsoring the Armed Forces Day Ceremony at Sherrill Park.

The ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. to honor our Military Armed Forces active and veterans. Ms. Corina Avila, USMC Iraqi Freedom Veteran, will be the keynote speaker; the chaplain for the ceremony will be Capt. Rev. Ernest Philips, Ret. US Navy Ret. WWII Veteran.

All military active, retired, and veterans are invited, we hope that we can have a larger attendance of women military & veterans attend the ceremony.
