The Alamo is proud to host the Opening Ceremony to Celebrate America's Military to celebrate, honor and recognize active and former military and their families. Held in conjunction with the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, this impactful ceremony will mark the beginning of the annual two-week Celebrating America’s Military schedule of city-wide special events.
In years past, a proclamation designated November 1st through November 19th as Celebrate America's Military. This is the largest and longest held series of events honoring our Military Service Members, Families, and Veterans in the Nation. We will honor and highlight the role of our Active, Guard and Reserve as well as honoring those organizations who support them and specifically honor the challenges and sacrifices related to our current events in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Speakers at the ceremony include Richard Perez, President and CEO of the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, Lt. General Brian Robinson, Commander of Air Education Training Command, Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff, San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg, and Kate Rogers, Executive Director of Alamo Trust, Inc. The public is invited to attend.
