Although the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancelation of the City’s Annual Veterans Day Parade and Ceremony, the City will continue with tradition and produce its annual video tribute recognizing local Victorville Veterans. The Salute to Victorville Veterans video will be posted to the City of Victorville’s website, Facebook and Instagram pages on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
Veterans can complete the Information Forms themselves, or the forms can be completed by friends and family. This tribute is for all Veterans, current and past, with any length of military service that is active duty, reserve component or National Guard with any U.S. military branch. The only requirement is the Veteran must have lived in Victorville at some point in his or her lifetime.
