Thursday, Noon
Veterans Memorial Court
near 401 Van Ness Avenue @McAllister

The ground breaking ceremony for the San Francisco Veterans Memorial full fills landscape architect Thomas Church’s original 1920 vision for a memorial to Veterans. The soil in, the memorial site, the Veterans Memorial Court made sacred by the interment of consecrated soils from battlefields throughout the world.  The Court is the open space between the Veterans Building and the Opera House.

The winning memorial design proposal “Passage of Remembrance” is by Susan Narduli and Andrea Cochran and 2.5 million dollars has been raised to begin the construction of the long awaited monument.

Veterans and the public are invited to the ceremony.
