Each year, the City of Dublin, in partnership with the Wesley G. Davids Dublin Post 800 of the American Legion, hosts the annual Veterans Day Ceremony at Dublin Veterans Park. This event honors all men and women who served our country to protect our freedom.
We welcome you and your family to join us at 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 10, 2023, to support and celebrate our veterans!
Ceremony will include remarks from Commander Jeff Noble, Council Member and U.S. Army veteran John Reiner, keynote speaker Carol Jaeger, LTC USA (RET) and music by Dublin’s John Sells Middle School students.
In the event of inclement weather, the event will move indoors to the John Sells Middle School gymnasium.
We also invite the public to take a tour of the Grounds of Remembrance. Visit the eight features at the Dublin Veterans and scan the corresponding QR code to watch an informational video narrated by U.S. Army veteran Mike Kehoe.
