The Presentation of Colors will be offered by the USCYBERCOM & NSA/CSS Joint Service Color Guard. The National Anthem will be sung by soloist MSGT Danielle Harmon of the USAF.
This year’s keynote address will be offered by Pastor William F.R. Gilroy, St. John Lutheran Church.

The Linthicum Veterans Memorial was born out of Linthicum’s centennial celebration in 2008. The Memorial itself was completed and publicly dedicated in May of 2010.
The Memorial is located in the heart of the Linthicum Heights Historic District at the corner of Camp Meade Road and Maple Road. This land was donated to Anne Arundel County by the C. Milton Linthicum Family. The Memorial itself was designed locally by Notari Associates.
The Memorial is maintained by the Linthicum Veterans Memorial Inc., a non-profit Maryland Corporation recognized as tax-exempt the IRS [501(c)(3)]. Funds are raised by the corporation through the sale of Commemoration Bricks, Bricks of Honor, Historic Bricks, Commemorative Tiles, and Challenge Coins. The Buy-A-Brick Program is detailed in the organization’s brochure that can be found at the Linthicum Library and at many local Linthicum businesses. The Challenge Coins will be available before and after the Veterans Day Ceremony on November 11th.
Hope to see you there!
