ALPINE (CNS) - A ceremony will be held at the Alpine Community Center Saturday to induct 20 honorees on the Alpine Veterans Wall of Fame.

The ceremony will feature a performance by local color guards and an appearance by the Patriot Guard Riders in addition to tributes to current members of the wall. The monument, which opened on Memorial Day in 2011, includes roughly 800 tiles, representing active-duty military members and veterans from all eras and branches of the military.

"Our No. 1 goal is to say thank you and that wall is a huge thank you to those who wore the uniform," Wall of Fame Chairman Dan Foster said. "I want them to know that someone cared."

The ceremony is expected to begin at 9 a.m. and is free to attend. The Wall of Fame is located at the Alpine Community Center, at 1830 Alpine Blvd. Information on the wall can be found at alpinewallofhonor.org.
