Veterans and all members of the community are invited to attend the Veterans Day LA event outside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Nov. 11, 4th District LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn’s office announced in a press release.

The Coliseum’s historic torch will be lit at 11am to mark the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month,” the exact time in which the armistice ended World War I.

“Veterans Day LA will be a celebration of veterans, their service to this nation and an opportunity for all of us to show our appreciation,” Hahn said. “The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is more than a stadium—– it is a living memorial to our nation’s veterans. Together we are going to light the historic Coliseum torch and recommit our support to the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for us and continue to contribute so much to our communities and our country.”

The event will include a formal ceremony emceed by comedian, radio host and veteran James P. Connolly, and will feature Supervisor Hahn, National Guard Veteran presidential candidate and Congressmember Tulsi Gabbard, Army Veteran and Chair of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs Senator Bob Archuleta, Lieutenant General Stayce D.
