The Pleasanton community joined together last Sunday to honor military veterans downtown during the 22nd annual Tri-Valley Veterans Day Parade -- held as usual on the weekend before Veterans Day to allow local veterans and civic leaders to represent Pleasanton at other celebrations on the holiday itself.
Veterans Day will be recognized throughout the country on Sunday, with special tribute paid to this year marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
The public holiday will be observed on Monday. Pleasanton schools and city offices will be among the public facilities closed Monday for the holiday.
