Veteran’s Day

Edgar's picture

On Veterans Day, Americans honor all American veterans, both living and dead for their sacrifices in protecting the greatest country in the world.

At exactly 11 a.m., each November 11, a color guard, made up of members from each of the military branches, renders honors to America’s war dead during a heart-moving ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery.

The President or his representative places a wreath at the Tomb and a bugler sounds Taps. The balance of the ceremony, including a “Parade of Flags” by numerous veterans’ service organizations, takes place inside the Memorial Amphitheater, adjacent to the Tomb.
