Along with the ceremony at Alameda Veterans Memorial Park, an event honoring those who served in the military will also take place on Memorial Day at the USS Hornet museum.
The event aboard the vintage aircraft carrier will feature a wreath laying and a speech by Commander James Ridgway of the Naval Operational Support Center in Alameda, as well as an invocation from retired U.S. Navy Chaplain John Berger. It will begin at 1 p.m.
But before the ceremony gets under way, the Hornet Band and the Young American Patriots Fife & Drum Corps will provide music beginning at 11 a.m.
The Boy Scouts of America will present the colors.
The Hornet's exhibits, which trace the ship's history from World War II through the Apollo moon landings and the Vietnam War, also will be open. Tours of the ship will take place 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Admission is $15 adults, or $12 with a military identification, and $6 for children.
The USS Hornet is berthed at 707 West Hornet Ave., Pier 3, in Alameda.
