On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Often referred to as 9/11, the attacks resulted in extensive death and destruction, triggering major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defining the presidency of George W. Bush. Over 3,000 people were killed during the attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., including more than 400 police officers and firefighters.
MINThe NEVADA VETERANS COALITION will conduct its sixteenth Missing in Nevada mission at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery [NNVMC] by honoring nineteen veterans whose remains have been in the care of a local mortuary, yet remained unclaimed.
You served your country through a war, or through peacetime. You expected to receive a military burial, recognition by our government of your commitment to our great country. You expected to have honor and respect paid to you as a result of your service to our great country. Instead, you reside on a shelf in a mortuary or a storage facility at a crematorium.
WAAThe Nevada Veteran's Coalition has been involved in the Wreaths Across America project since 2007. In that first year, we were able to purchase 40 wreaths from the donations we received from the community. The number of wreaths we now place on the grave sites, every December at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, has reached 5,000.
Once again our Wreaths Across America -2017- service was a success with over 1700 folks coming out and placing 7,500 wreaths. This year the event will be held at NNVMC on Saturday, December 15 2018 at 9:00 AM. Without you it would be difficult to make something like this possible. Let's make this year, Fifth in a row, as we place a wreath on every veterans headstone!
The Commemoration is providing Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pins to Commemorative Partners for dignified public presentations to living U.S. military veterans who served during the Vietnam War period as a lasting memento of the nation's thanks. Living United States veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period of November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of location, are eligible to receive one lapel pin.
The ceremony is one of the most popular Memorial Day services in Northern Nevada. For this year's ceremony we recognized the United States Coast Guard. Keynote speakers were: Brigadier General William R Burks, Adjutant General Nevada National Guard; and Rear Admiral Nathan A Moore, Deputy Commander US Coast Guard. Over 3600 people attended and were treated to a helicopter landing coordinated by Kent Everingham, Commanding Officer, Coast Guard Air Station San Francisco.

The 1st Battalion of Nevada Volunteer Cavalry, or the Nevada Territory Cavalry Volunteers, was a unit raised for the Union army during the American Civil War. It remained in the west, garrisoning frontier posts, protecting emigrant routes, and engaged in scouting duties. The unit was disbanded in July 1866. This monument is dedicated to all those that served in the 1st Battalion of Nevada Volunteer Cavalry. ARTIST Scott Rogers Bronze Fine Art
