The celebration will be held at the Go For Broke Monument in Little Tokyo (major cross streets are E. Temple Street and Judge John Aiso Street). Parking is limited, so please plan accordingly.

General admission for all others is $20/person. Due to the size of the expected crowd, we can only guarantee five (5) general admission tickets per veteran family. To register, please download the LA CGM Registration Form. Deadline for reservations is May 25, 2012.
