Mayor Teri Johnston and the City Commission issued a proclamation recognizing Friday, November 11, 2022, as Veteran's Day.
On that day, ready with the proclamation, "the City of Key West will join the citizens this year to pay tribute to the dedicated veterans who have served this great nation with such distinction, both in peacetime and in war.
"Our community is grateful to those who have given so much in defense of the freedoms we all enjoy."
A ceremony at the Veteran's Memorial at Bayview Park and a Veteran's Day Parade will honor the dedicated men and women.
"We pledge the continued defense of our nation so that their sacrifice will stand before the entire world as a tribute to the spirit and determination of a people dedicated to the principles of freedom and democracy.”
