Today's photos show Coastline Post 3536, Veterans of Foreign Wars of Costa Mesa, placing a plaque at Marine Corps Air Station El Toro on Veteran's Day 1954.
This year, you can start Veterans Day a day early. On Nov. 10th, broadcaster, journalist and historian Jeff Rowe will give an illustrated lecture entitled "Orange County's Armed Forces Through the Years" at the Orange County Historical Society's monthly meeting. The program will begin at 7:30pm, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 2400 N. Canal St., in Orange. Learn about O.C.'s military heroes, bases and museums, and how local civilian attitudes toward our veterans have changed over the decades.
Charles Beal will also be on hand with a display of memorabilia from Orange County's Civil War veterans.
