They made a choice. A choice to fight for what they believe in, a choice to defend what they love. The men and women who joined the armed services, who put their lives on hold and risked everything, deserve our undying honor and respect. Let us never forget those who had the courage to put everything on the line to protect our way of life.
The Alpine Veterans Wall of Honor is located on the property of the Alpine Community Center, 1830 Alpine Blvd., Alpine, CA. The Wall is located just to the left of the Community Center building.
Our Wall of Honor was recently recognized by the Ford Good Works program, who spent three days in Alpine filming a feature about it to be aired on CBS sports stations internationally beginning March 2nd, 2014. It is now accessible on YouTube:Ford Good Works Feature about Wall of Honor.
