On Monday, May 26, 2003, the City of Inglewood hosted its 55th Annual Memorial Day Service. Over 150 individuals were on hand for the celebration, including elected officials, residents, servicemen, volunteers, and representatives from 15 local and community-based organizations. The City’s commemorative ceremonies celebrated the lives of war heroes from the City of Inglewood who gave their lives for our country. It also paid tribute to the brave men and women who are currently serving in the armed forces.
