Celebrate Veterans Day virtually with the City of Norco on Wednesday, November 11! The virtual ceremony will be live at 8 a.m. on the City of Norco's official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/cityofnorco), and will remain available for later viewing. During the ceremony, members of the Norco City Council will join local veterans and keynote speaker and acclaimed actor Keith David to reflect on the meaning of Veterans Day and honor all who have served.
Additionally, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Veterans Day, the community may honor our nation’s flag, pay tribute to our fallen heroes, and reflect on the meaning of Veterans Day at the moving George A. Ingalls Veterans Memorial Plaza. Vehicles may enter through Gate 5 of the Ingalls Event Center from Crestview Drive.
About the Keynote Speaker: Keith David is an incredibly versatile actor with hundreds of performance credits to his name in television, feature films and Broadway. Even those who may not recognize his face may know his Emmy Award-winning voice, featured in projects like Ken Burns’ acclaimed miniseries The War and some of the world’s most popular video games. As a young actor, Keith appeared in Platoon, Oliver Stone’s Oscar-winning film on the Vietnam War, the first of many military-related roles. Through his personal relationships and work as an actor, Keith has developed a profound respect for military men and women and honors them whenever he has an opportunity. This Veterans Day in Norco is just such an occasion.
