La Vista Memorial Park and Mortuary Memorial Day Celebration

La Vista Memorial Park and Mortuary, one of the San Diego's oldest and most historic cemeteries, will host its annual Memorial Day ceremonies Monday, May 27th, at its picturesque hilltop setting located at 3191 Orange St., in National City.

Over the years, La Vista’s Memorial Day activities have evolved into a community wide event supported enthusiastically by National City public officials and draws visitors from all over San Diego County.

"To us, Memorial Day is a chance for the entire community to come together, to pause and remember the lives given to protect us when we most needed it, and also to celebrate the sense of community that ensures here because of that sacrifice," said Luisa McCarthy, Event Organizer. As a symbol of that community spirit, several public officials will roll up their sleeves to serve the lunch in what has become an important component of La Vista’s Memorial Day tradition.

Wine Lecture: Save the Last Bullet

Jun 20, 2024

Join the Coronado Historical Association for our final Wine & Lecture this Spring, Save the Last Bullet. Heidi Langbein-Allen’s father, Willi Langbein, was thirteen when the Nazis took him away from his parents under the pretense of protecting him. The real reason was to mold him into cannon-fodder for use against the Russian army. Willi was sent to the Eastern Front at age fourteen in the last days of the war to stave off the advance of the Russians. Neither he nor his classmates We expected to return alive from the final battles of the Third Reich.   

Having survived the war against all odds, Willi returned home to find everything he knew destroyed. Numb and confused, he was mandated to serve one year of forced farm labor, putting his life on hold.
