Several Veterans Day events will be held across Southern California Friday to pay tribute to those who have served and are serving in our nation’s military.
Thousands of American flags, 2001 to be exact, are on display at the Covina Field of Valor Friday.
Veterans Day events will kick off at 11:23 a.m. with a U.S. Air Force flyover by four F-16 aircraft from New Mexico’s Holloman Air Force Base, according to the Covina Field of Valor website.
