Saluting Veterans (Repost)

November 11, 2013 | Special Report

On this Veterans Day [1], the Society of the Honor Guard, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier salutes the men and women who selflessly served in the United States of America (U.S.) Armed Forces [2] to protect freedom.

Each year on Veterans Day, the President participates in a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier as part of the Veteran’s Day National Ceremony. This national ceremony is held in Arlington National Cemetery to show gratitude to and honor those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
