Oakmont honors its veterans

As it does every year, Oakmont gave special thanks for the veterans living in its community on Monday, Nov. 11. The day’s events kicked off with a flag ceremony at the Oakmont Gardens flag pole, then moved to the Berger Center for a veterans appreciation ceremony and reception. A flag ceremony and the pledge of allegiance was led by Santa Rosa Boy Scout Troop 55, followed by a stirring rendition of (above). Participants of past wars were asked to stand, which included about half a dozen World War II veterans, as well as anyone who served in the armed forces. Special recognition was given to Brooks Marlar, a U.S, Navy veteran who was on the USS Missouri in 1945 for the signing of the agreement formalizing Japan’s surrender. Also recognized was Mike Cannon, a World War II Air Force veteran who served in the 365th Fighter Group (the Hellhawks) in Europe. Various luminaries spoke at the event, which was followed by lunch and a reception. Photo by Alec Peters
