Due to coronavirus pandemic and health orders prohibiting gatherings, Oak Hill Memorial Park has created a Virtual Ceremony. It was pre-recorded just before Memorial Day and included messages from various officials sheltering at home. It is now posted online and excerpts are available on local and national ABC News website and Facebook. See flyer for links.
On Memorial Day, the District 13 Honor Guard will render military honors at a shortened ceremony at Oak Hill, but visitors are discouraged due to health orders.
The 129th Air Rescue Wing C130 and Pave Hawk Helicopter will perform a Flyover of medical facilities throughout the Bay Area.
