Each VA national cemetery will conduct a brief wreath laying ceremony, accompanied by a moment of silence and the playing of Taps. In keeping with CDC guidelines to limit large gatherings, the ceremonies will not be open to the public.
VA invites you to participate in these ceremonies virtually. Live stream links and videos of Memorial Day 2020 Ceremonies at VA National Cemeteries from across the country will be posted here as they appear on May 25.
