This service is open to all vet eras organization, patriotic and fraternal organizations, scouting groups,and individuals who want to share in a tribute to Four Chaplains of differing faiths who, in brotherhood, gave their life so others may have a second chance at living theirs.

Memorial Day
Each year, on the Monday designated by the Government as Memorial Day, the UVC conducts a public ceremony at Oak Hill Memorial Park in San Jose, California. Local Boy and Girl Scouts place 3,600 American flags at the headstones of veterans of all wars in six burial plots: the Veteran's Plot, Field of Honor Plot, Spanish American War Plot, two Civil War Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) Plots and Women's Relief Corps GAR Auxiliary Plot. The UVC Memorial Day Ceremony is held at the Veteran's Plot at 11 am and includes the posting of military and veteran organization colors, placing of wreaths, a rifle salute and playing of Taps.

Veterans Day
Since 1919, a public ceremony or parade has been held on Veterans Day in Downtown San Jose, California. Now sponsored by the UVC with support from the City of San Jose and County of Santa Clara along with contributions from many individuals and organizations, this Veterans Day Parade, one of the largest in Northern California, honors all who served or are currently serving their country. The Opening Ceremony for the Parade begins on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month with a memorial ceremony at Plaza de Cesar Chavez on Market Street in honor of the 1918 Armistice of the "War to End All Wars." The Parade steps off at 12:00 Noon from Delmas Street near the HP Pavilion and travels east along Santa Clara to Market Street. The Parade then proceeds south on Market, passing the reviewing stand at Park Street opposite Plaza de Cesar Chavez near the Tech Museum, and ends at San Carlos Street.

Reports about ending the Veterans Day Parade were not correct.
Planning for this year's parade is already underway.
Volunteers are needed, please Contact UVC if you can help.
Flag Lowering
Every other month, the UVC sponsors a Flag Lowering Ceremony at Oak Hill Memorial Park in San Jose, California. The event is usually held on the last Sunday of the month at 1:30 PM near the main entrance flag pole where a different deceased veteran's name is displayed each day. The UVC member organizations take turns performing the ceremony which includes reading all the veteran names which were displayed since the previous ceremony. Due to the holidays, usually there are no ceremonies held in November or December. Any deceased Veteran (including Merchant Marine) may be honored by Oak Hill. The Veteran does not have to be recently deceased and does not have to be buried at Oak Hill. Send as much as is known: veteran's name, branch of service, rank or rate, date of death, where interred, next of kin's name/address/phone to:
Oak Hill Memorial Park
Attn.: Flag Lowering Ceremony, 300 Curtner Ave, San Jose, CA 95125
