The program theme is "Remembering our Heroes and The Sacrifice of Service Members." Admission is free and open to the public.
 
The celebration begins at 10 a.m. with a patriotic concert featuring Lone Star Symphonic Band. A formal tribute follows at 11 a.m. with words of remembrance by local dignitaries. A representative from The American Legion will also discuss the organization's centennial celebration and mission.
 
The program will continue the community tradition of acknowledging the names of veterans engraved inside the walls of the Remembrance Tower at Sugar Land Memorial Park. Patriotic music tributes will be performed by guest vocalists, Houston Commemorative Air Force will perform a military flyover and there will be a 21-gun salute. The ceremony will close with a traditional flag observance led by a local Boy Scout troop at noon.
 
Attendees will be able to visit with a number of organizations serving veterans in Fort Bend County. Vendor exhibits will be on display along with The American Legion's travelling exhibit "The Greatest Legislation: An American Legion Centennial Salute to the GI Bill." There will be a creative station for children's crafts, and food concessions will be available for purchase.
 
Public parking and shuttle services will be available at University of Houston Sugar Land, 14000 University Blvd. Complimentary shuttle services will run continuously from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
