The Veterans Day National Ceremony is held each year on November 11th at Arlington National Cemetary.  The ceremony begins percisely at 11 a.m. with a wreath laying at the tomb of the UNKNOWNS and continues inside the Memorial Amphitheater with a parade of colors by Veterans' Organizations and remarks from Dignitaries.  The ceremony is intended to honour and thank all who served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
