Military & Veterans Day at Legislature

SANTA FE - Military & Veterans Day at the 2020 Legislature is Jan. 25 at the State Capitol in Santa Fe.

This is the day each year on which the New Mexico Department of Veterans Services and the New Mexico National Guard honor active-duty service members and veterans.

Every year, a particular segment of the military is highlighted at a noon ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda.  This year, the spotlight will be on former Prisoners of War and those still listed as Missing in Action.

The public is invited to join in this annual celebration of New Mexico's service members and veterans, and to honor our nation's former POWs and current MIAs.

Information tables will be open from 8 am - 1 pm in the east and west wings of the rotunda, staffed by the N. M. National Guard, DVS, veterans' service organizations and community service organizations.

Veterans and active-duty personnel are encouraged to meet their local legislaturs to discuss military and veterans' issues, and to see the legislative process in action in the chambers of the state senate and the state house of representatives.
