The service will begin with the ceremony of colors, followed by the national anthem performed by the four vet quartet, followed by this year’s keynote speaker, First Sergeant Patrick Foye, who was deployed in 3 continents, doing work in Haiti, Bosnia, and Afghanistan, as well as being a member of the Lakewood Police Department for 26 years. After Mr. Foye’s speech, the Lakewood Ranger Marching Band will be performing, as well as a 21-gun salute by the Joint Veterans Honor Guard. Following the service, doughnuts and coffee will be served in the women’s pavilion.
