Veterans from the different war eras will participate in the ceremonial reading of the names of the war dead, dating back to World War I. San Marcos Mayor Jane Hughson will preside over the Memorial Day ceremony.  

Retired Army Colonel, Charles Walts will be the featured speaker during the program.
