Deafening silence, followed by a chorus of oohs and ahs from the audience, accompanied the posting of the colors by the Santo Domingo Pueblo’s Native American Disabled Veterans at the opening business session at the BVA 62nd National Convention. The polished ceremony included the Civil War version of the Star Spangled Banner played by the New Mexico Territorial Brass Band.
An equally impressive march and ceremony were performed at the Saturday evening Awards Banquet. Honoring BVA’s presence in Albuquerque, the Santo Domingo Native American Disabled Veterans also sponsored an arts and crafts fair in nearby Civic Plaza during the convention week.
