Memorial Day 2022 Ceremonies Around Ventura County
Memorial Day – May 30, 2022
Honoring All Those Who Paid the Ultimate Sacrifice
Memorial Day is a federally-observed holiday to honor the men and women of our U.S. military who paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country.
We are grateful for their actions and keep their family members and their sacrifices in our prayers.
We have compiled many of the Memorial Day 2022 ceremonies and observances taking place across Ventura County as an opportunity to pay homage to those who have fallen.
We have also partnered with a couple of local companies this Memorial Day to honor and remember all who paid the ultimate sacrifice by supporting our local military veterans and their families in need.
