VETERANS DAY NATIONAL COMMITTEE SELECTS VETERANS DAY REGIONAL SITES FOR 2023 - VA NEWS
Each year, the Veterans Day National Committee—comprised of representatives from nearly 50 organizations dedicated to serving and supporting America’s Veterans—hosts the annual Veterans Day observance at Arlington National Cemetery. On Nov. 11, the ceremony will begin at 11:00 a.m. with the laying of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and continue inside the Memorial Amphitheater with a parade of colors by Veterans organizations and remarks from dignitaries.
VA encourages communities and non-profit organizations to apply to host VA-recognized, local Veterans Day observances. These events will ensure that fitting tributes are paid across the Nation and serve as examples for other communities to follow when planning their Veterans Day observances. This year, Veterans Day ceremonies recognized by VA will be held in 66 communities throughout 34 states and the District of Columbia to honor the Nation’s Veterans.
Each approved regional site receives a supply of official Veterans Day posters, military ceremonial support from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), and a certificate from the Secretary of Veterans Affairs for inclusion in the official program.
