The City of Alexandria and the Friends of Rocky Versace will host the 16th Annual Veterans' Day Ceremony on Sat., Nov. 11 from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Mount Vernon Recreation Center, 2701 Commonwealth Ave. The ceremony will honor Captain Rocky Versace, a posthumous Medal of Honor recipient, Ranger Hall of Fame inductee, Distinguished Member of the Special Forces Regiment and Distinguished Member of The Old Guard Regiment. This former Del Ray resident was taken as a POW and was executed by the Viet-Cong, reportedly while loudly singing "God Bless America." The ceremony also honors the 66 other Alexandrians who died during the Vietnam War, and all veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces in attendance.
