Veterans Day events in La Crescenta did not end with the ceremony honoring the World War II veterans at Two Strike Park but continued with the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce mixer later that evening.

Held at American Legion Hall Post 288, several of the WWII veterans who had attended the Two Strike Park event earlier in the day enjoyed dinner and another presentation in their honor. The veterans at the American Legion also shared Challenge Coins specially designed for WWII vets.

Legion members were on hand to greet guests.

“It feels great,” said WWII veteran Charles Tucker of the recognition. “But you know, maybe the present generation doesn’t fully understand how unified the country was in WWII. Everyone worked [together]; women went to work in the factories. War was won in Detroit as well as on the battlefield.”

The JRTOC color guard began the evening’s festivities.
