Precisely 101 years after a ceasefire went into effect between the Allies of World War I and Germany, at 11 a.m. on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, the sun will align perfectly with five apertures in a five-pillar sculpture to cast a perfect circle of light on the Great Seal of the United States at the Anthem Veterans Memorial. Weather permitting, of course.
The ceremony, open to the public, honors all veterans.
Army vet and current reservist Chief Warrant Officer Matthew Woodruff will deliver the keynote address. Sandra Day O’Connor High School Air Force Jr. ROTC cadets will provide support. Musical Theater of Anthem and the Arizona Veterans Band will provide music.

The memorial, dedicated Nov. 11, 2011, is now an Arizona Historic Landmark. The columns represent the five branches of the U.S. military.
Expect a big crowd and limited seating. Bring chairs or blankets. Parking in the lot nearest the Memorial is intended for those who can’t walk longer distances. Others should park in the middle or lower lots, or at the Community Center and access the park via the footbridge.
