On Monday February 16, President's Day Holiday, a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held for the Huntington Dr. Veteran's Monument. The event was hosted by 14th District Councilman Huizar and attended by over 100 people, most of them veterans and their families. The monument honors veterans from all five branches of the military. The monument is a circular design with a raised platform in the center and a flag pole displaying the American flag at the very heart of the design. Each military branch has a bronze plaque set into the raised platform. The monument had been long awaited by the veterans of the community, who have looked at many proposals in the past. The monument's construction finally became a reality thanks to Councilman Huizar who funded the project. The design and construction was provided by BSS Engineering and the Special Project Divisions.
