The 2021 Veterans Day Celebration Ceremony, held at the site of the future University Place Veterans Plaza, currently under construction, welcomed a larger group of people than the tent could hold. But true Washingtonians that they are, the group who were not under cover had brought their umbrellas and remained for the entire ceremony. 

Many thanks to all of the participants: Master of Ceremonies Council Member and Brigadier General (ret.) Stan Flemming; Mayor Caroline Belleci; Col. Derek “Shane” Finison, 16th Combat Aviation Brigade; Chaplain Ralph Decker, American Legion Post 138; Chaplain Major Ryan Steenburg, 16th Combat Aviation Brigade; Curtis High School Navy Junior Reserves Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) Color Guard; Cub Scout Pack 148, Den 10; Brownie Troop; University Place Veterans Day Singers; Roger Gruener, UPVP Committee; the entire University Place Veterans Plaza Committee, most notably Bob Schwartz; and the many University Place community members who came to honor and remember the veterans in University Place and around the world.
