A Veterans Day observance honoring veterans of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces was held on Monday, Nov. 12, 2018, at the Upper St. Clair Veterans Park, 1820 McLaughlin Run Road.
Devlin Robinson, a U.S. Marine who served three tours in Afghanistan and one tour in Iraq, served as the event’s featured speaker. He participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom’s liberation phase, which brought him to the battles of Nasiriyah, Diwaniyah, Kut and Baghdad. He was then deployed to Fallujah and Saqlaweyah in 1st Battalion 6th Marine Regiment.
In addition, the Veterans Day program featured musical performances by Upper St. Clair High School’s Chanteclairs and marching band as well as the Baker Elementary fourth grade chorus.
USC Veterans Park, located adjacent to township and school district offices on McLaughlin Run Road, was dedicated on Nov. 11, 2011. A full description and history of the park can be viewed at www.uscveteranspark.org.
