Returning after a two-year absence, this year’s ceremony is a tribute to Gold Star families.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone again and celebrating Veterans Day with you.


 Welcome and Recognition of Veterans

Dr. Lloyd Holmes

President of De Anza College


Major General (ret.) Mike Myatt, USMC

Commanded the Marine 1st Infantry Division in Operation Desert Storm

 Special Commendation

 Seaman Apprentice Ginger Nelson “Doris” Jacobson, for her service in the Navy WAVES from 1943 to 1945


Many Cupertino citizens have stopped by the memorial since the initial dedication to remember all those who have made sacrifices so that we can enjoy our freedoms every day.

And to our veterans, first responders, and their families: Thank you for being willing to stand up for the freedoms we enjoy every day. Without your sacrifice, we would not exist as the living example of freedom for nations around the world.

The Guardians

The Guardians is a very moving image of two defenders, ever watchful, back to back. The two soldiers represented are Cupertino’s own Matthew Axelson, and James Suh, two Navy SEAL’s who died fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan during Operation Red Wings. “Lone Survivor”, the book and movie, recalls their courage and sacrifice.

“The Guardians, defenders of our freedoms”
