Cupertino Veterans Memorial
Many Cupertino citizens have stopped by the memorial since the
initial dedication to remember all those who have made sacrifices
so that we can enjoy our freedoms every day.
The Guardians is a very moving image of two defenders, ever watchful,
back to back.  The two soldiers represented are Cupertino's own
Matthew Axelson, and James Suh, two Navy SEAL's who died fighting
the Taliban in Afghanistan during
Operation Red Wings.

Some of the guests at the dedication described the image as:
"The Guardians, defenders of our freedoms"

Operation Red Wings was the catalyst for the design and
placement of the Cupertino Veterans Memorial and subject of the
book and movie "Lone Survivor".

In addition to Military Fire and Sheriff's honor guards, there will
be military speakers and a Coast Guard Helicopter Fly-Over.

Please join us as we salute our veterans, active duty military,
and first responders.

Our world is a safer place because of their service and sacrifice.
