Media Gallery: Veterans Day Ceremony

The City of West Hollywood held its annual Veterans Day Ceremony on Sunday.

West Hollywood residents, members of city council, and a bevy of others celebrated Veterans Day at the Sal Guarriello Veterans' Memorial on Sunday afternoon.

On hand to speak at Sunday's event were Congressman Adam Schiff, as well as three guest speakers: Yevsey Epshteyn, on behalf of the Russian WWII Veterans, Dave Culmer, service director for the American Legion of the Los Angeles County Council, and Andrew Harland, director of Vietnam Veterans in the Media.

Weho Mayor Jeffrey Prang introduced each of Sunday's speakers, and Fairfax High School JROTC conducted the Presentation of Colors. 

The Star Spangled Banner was sung by Councilman John Duran and the Gay Men's Chorus quartet.

It would have been nice if they had a pancake breakfast for everyone in attendance to celebrate the Vets as well as remember them. I mean I Hop is right there.
