Full Video & Photos From EPVMD's Veteran's Day Program

Murphys, CA...We live Streamed the event and we are finally getting the rest of EPVMD's Veterans Day Program up. It was another great Veteran's Day and Veteran's Day programs from Veteran's Memorial Park in Murphys. On a sad note the number World War Two Veteran's in attendance dropped to two. Over the last few years the number has dropped from a dozen or so to now this year just two. Everyday the last of the Greatest Generation leaves the stage. The Albert Michelson Elementary school students delivered great addresses and proved that the future of our Republic is in good hands with the future generations.
















































About the EPVMD District.

The Ebbetts Pass Veteran's Memorial District covers Calaveras County from Alpine County down to right above Vallecito, and from the Stanislaus River on the south to a boundary line going toward Sheep Ranch. There are five board members, serving terms of four years at a time, with at least three of them required to be veterans and all of them required to live in the district and be registered to vote in the district. The board meets once a month at their hall in Murphys. They planned, designed and have installed many flag pole memorials at fire stations, parks, cemeteries and other locations throughout their district.

In addition they provide new flags for schools and provide individual flags for the graves of all veterans buried in Buena Vista Cemetery in Murphys. The board members also march in parades in Arnold and Murphys, carrying the flags of each branch of the service, to increase awareness of veterans.

In 2010 the Veteran's District was allowed to use a portion of county land next to the Murphys Community Park for a large Veteran's Memorial. It includes a tall central flag pole with the emblems of all the branches of service on the base, handicapped accessible walkways, benches and a wall where families could purchase a brick engraved with the name of a veteran to memorialize them.

In 2014 the memorial was greatly enlarged due to the generosity of the John Kautz family, who designed and paid for the entire project. The central feature is a bronze statue of a soldier mounted on a large boulder. This new section was dedicated on Memorial Day 2014, with the Kautz family bringing in food tents and providing a free lunch for all veterans after the dedication. This addition to the memorial area also includes another wall for memorial bricks and picnic tables. The location, next to the creek and surrounded by trees, makes it a perfect spot.

Kudos and great event! My dad, A.C. Smith (late formerly of Dorrington) was also a WW2 veteran in the U.S. Army.

    These men are very honorable as well as our fallen heroes of the past. If my dad, A.C. Smith, was still alive he would have been there and commending them.

    comment.

    These men are twice the man trump is. How disrespectful and stupid do you have to be to place the life of someone who served their country as a war vet over an assclown like our current president? All U.S. presidents should have had to serve in active duty military to be eligible for election. Simple. That would have spared us the current idiot, shrub and slick willie, to say the least.

      Aren't you a little too judgemental? There is and there have been good presidents who weren't even in the service and they did well. Since Trump had some sort of ailment or whatever that disqualified him for the service, it's not his fault!
