National Cemeteries Honoring Veterans Day

Posted on: November 9th, 2010 by National Trust for Historic Preservation

Veterans Day in Idaho (image via Flickr user H. Sterling Cross)

November 11 marks Veterans Day, “intended to thank living veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served—not only those who died—have sacrificed and done their duty."

The Veterans Day National Ceremony in the capital region will feature a wreath-laying, parade, and remarks at Arlington National Cemetery, but national cemeteries across the country have scheduled their own events. Some sites may also extend their observances after November 11 to be more inclusive.

The Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) National Cemetery Administration maintains 131 national cemeteries in 39 states and Puerto Rico, as well as 33 soldier’s lots and monument sites. You can learn more about national cemeteries near your community, or find 2010 Veterans Day ceremonies, at cem.va.gov.
