Wendy Glazier, a San Marino resident and former Commander in the United States Navy, will be the keynote speaker at San Marino’s acknowledgement of Memorial Day on Monday, May 28. The ceremony begins at 9:00 a.m. at the War Memorial in Lacy Park.
Glazier served in the Navy from 1986-2006, as an intelligence officer in different capacities throughout her tenure. She also spent time as an International Relations liaison between the United States and the navies and intelligence organizations of other nations.
During Operation Desert Storm, Glazier was engaged in Washington, DC, as an analyst, tasking satellites, aircraft and ships. She later taught intelligence for the United States Navy at Point Loma.
The Rev. Heather Blackstone, Director of Youth Ministries of St. Edmund’s Episcopal Church, will provide the opening and closing prayers for the ceremony.
The Memorial Day event also includes a tribute to all local war veterans, and an acknowledgement of the 52 San Marino residents who gave their lives defending the nation and its freedoms. Veterans in attendance will be encouraged to provide a brief summary of their military experience.
San Marino resident and veteran Bob Dini will lead the audience in the singing of patriotic songs and the Chinese Club of San Marino will also contribute to the ceremony.
