This year’s celebration was held in special honor of SBVC alumnus Robert “Bob” Logsdon Jr. This San Bernardino native was a three-war Navy veteran, having served 32 years in World World II, the Korean War and Vietnam War. As a professional photographer, Logsdon spread his knowledge as well as his skills in the San Bernardino City Unified School District's adult school program.

In September of 2018, Logsdon passed away at the age of 101. The Veterans Day Salute was dedicated to Logsdon for his years of service in the military and his impact on the local community. The parade spotlighted veterans groups with drill teams, marching bands, military vehicles and classic cars. Following the parade, a ceremony in the park, veteran resource fair, vendors, live entertainment and a fly-over of T-34 aircraft completed the community salute.
