Steve and Nanci Trevino, co-founders of Ponderosa Valley Funeral Services, are “excited about using internet technology to invite everyone who wants to honor our veterans with a virtual front-row seat from the comfort and safety of their homes,” according to the press release.
“Livestreaming has the potential to dramatically expand the number of people who can share in this meaningful ceremony from the several hundred of years past to thousands this year,” according to the release.
The ceremony will begin with an aircraft flyover from the Colorado Air National Guard. The Parker Chorale will perform patriotic songs and the Parker American Legion and the Parker Veterans of Foreign War will render tributes, according to the press release.
The service's keynote speaker will be Retired U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Christopher J. Petty, United States Military Academy at West Point Class of 1987. The service will also include a 21-gun Salute, taps, the folding and presentation of the U.S. flag and the reading of veterans' names, according to the release.
