Honoring those who gave it all. A somber day at Riverside Park. A crowd of service men and women, veterans, first responders and community members paid respect to those who put on their uniform, fought for our country and but ultimately never made it home.

An American tradition played out, taps, a gun salute and a helicopter fly over all above the 100 flags that lined the aisle of flags.

 At this ceremony, a plaque was donated to the City of Bonita Springs with the names of 500 veterans from Bonita Bay Club engraved on it
