About The Event

A patriotic ceremony honoring America’s military members and Veterans is scheduled for Saturday, November 11, 2017, at 11 a.m., in Arlington National Cemetery. A wreath -laying ceremony will take place at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, followed by a ceremony inside the Memorial Amphitheater, adjacent to the Tomb. The event will commence with a prelude concert by The United States Air Force Band at 10:30 a.m., inside the amphitheater.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to arrive early. Every effort is made to perform security screenings quickly and efficiently, but the lines to pass through the screening stations may become lengthy. The last shuttle from the Welcome Center and Fort Myer departs at 10:15 a.m. or once capacity is reached.

The event is hosted by Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Robert McDonald; Mr. Thomas Stevens, Korean War Veterans Association, National Commander; Mr. Patrick K. Hallinan, Executive Director, Army National Military Cemeteries; and Major General Bradley Becker, Commander of the U.S. Army Military District of Washington and the Joint Force Headquarters–National Capital Region.

The ceremony is free and open to the public. For those interested in observing the wreath ceremony, space is limited to standing room only. Inside the Amphitheater, seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are not required to attend and we anticipate the event to conclude at Noon.
