On Memorial Day in 2018, the Balboa Island Museum & Historical Society hosted a barbecue to honor our veterans. It was held in the Balboa Island Park on Agate Avenue. Many veterans came to socialize and share their stories with us. These photographs were taken during the event and feature numerous veterans who were on the Island celebrating that day.

Special recognition was giving to Newport Beach veterans killed in action during the Vietnam War. The living veterans of Vietnam were presented with the Vietnam War Veteran Recognition pins, a pin issued by the United States Government in honor of their service.
