Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Whether you are visiting Mexico or have made it your home, there are certain traditions you don't want to lose.
For many expats and members of American Legion, Veteran's Day is one of those traditions, as is Remembrance Day (also known as 'Poppy Day' or 'Armistice Day'), a Memorial Day observed in Commonwealth countries since the end of World War I to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. This is the 100th anniversary for the observance.
To honor service members of the U.S. and Canadian armed forces, the American Legion and Jay Sadler Project are organizing a Veteran's / Remembrance Day memorial on Sunday, November 11th. The event will take place at 11:00 am at Parque Hidalgo, located on Calle Peru at Jesus Langarica in downtown Puerto Vallarta, with the Mexican Navy Zone Color Guard performing with their drum and bugle corps. Coffee, pastry and water will be provided starting at 10:30 am, courtesy of Holly Campbell.
