Edgewood hosts the 29th Annual Memorial Day Ceremony, 5-30

The Edgewood ISD and the Edgewood High School Class of 1967 will co-host one of the largest Memorial Day ceremonies in San Antonio. The 29th Annual Memorial Ceremony begins with a musical prelude at 9:30 a.m. followed by ceremonies at the Edgewood Veteran’s Stadium formerly known as the Frank Mata Stadium. The stadium is located at 1650 W. Thompson Place behind Kennedy High School. Guest Speakers include: US. Army Colonel Pedro Lucero, Navy Petty Officer Mario Longoria and US Air Force (Ret.) Lieutenant Colonel Nora Alpizar.

The Edgewood Class of 1967 has the dubious distinction of losing more graduates as casualties in the Viet Nam War than any other high school in the San Antonio Metroplex.
