Veterans Day
November 11

Give a salute to war veterans! It's Veterans Day, when thousands of people will visit the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia. At 11 a.m., a color guard representing all military services will execute "Present Arms" at the tomb. A presidential wreath will be placed on the tomb, symbolizing the nation's remembrance of all those who died fighting for their country. A bugler will step up and play "Taps." After this Veterans Day ritual, ceremonies will continue in the surrounding amphitheater with speakers and tributes. This event takes place every year on November 11, the official holiday in the United States honoring veterans of the armed forces and the men and women who have served in the country's wars.
