West Bend, WI – Our traditional Veterans Day program – “at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” will be held again this year on Wednesday, November 11.

The short 15-minute program will begin at 10:45 a.m.  Area veterans will gather that morning on Veterans Plaza at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Poplar Street in West Bend.

A brief statement will be read followed by a moment of silence.

At 11 a.m., the siren will sound and the West Bend Veterans Honor Guard will fire the traditional three round volley followed by the playing of Taps.

We are inviting all citizens of Washington County to stand with us as we remember our veterans. Also, this year we are encouraging masks & social distancing for those attending.
