George A. Ingalls Veterans Memorial Plaza Dedication
Veterans Day, November 11, 2014, will be a very exciting day in the City of Norco, California. We will be honoring those who have protected our freedoms and those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice with the dedication of the George Ingalls Veterans Memorial Plaza.
George A. Ingalls was a Norco resident who died in Vietnam on April 16, 1967 and posthumously received the Congressional Medal of Honor. Army Specialist Ingalls threw himself onto a grenade to save the lives of the members of his squad. His gallantry and selfless devotion to his comrades were in keeping with the highest tradition of the military service and the United States Army. As a youth, George was involved with local sports, attending Norco Junior High, and Corona High School. Ingalls was also the president of the youth group at the Community Church of Norco. George Ingalls had a sense of loyalty not only to his sports teams, but to his family, his church, his community and his country. Because of his dedication and supreme sacrifice, the City of Norco has named its largest park in his honor, George Ingalls Equestrian Event Center. Within the event center, is the George Ingalls Veterans Memorial Plaza.
The dedication ceremony will take place at 3737 Crestview Ave, Norco at 10:00 a.m. Everyone attending should enter through gate 5 off Crestview.
