Memorial Day Ceremony: The annual Memorial Day Ceremony at Star Park has been canceled this year. However, the local sponsors – Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2422, Coronado Post; United States Navy League, Coronado Council; Military Officers Association Of America, Silver Strand Chapter; and Marine Corps League, Coronado Detachment – and the City of Coronado are working to produce a special videotaped program of the Memorial Day Ceremony that can be viewed on Coronado TV (Spectrum 19/AT&T 99) on Memorial Day, May 25, at 10 a.m. It will be replayed in the weeks following the holiday.
The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds did a spectacular flyover across San Diego yesterday honoring healthcare and frontline workers during the pandemic. As part of the flight the squadron flew over Coronado to give us a closeup thrill of patriotism.
