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. Learn more: VA national cemeteries to commemorate Memorial Day.

Instead of attending ceremonies in person, VA invites you to participate virtually. Live stream links and videos of the Memorial Day 2020 Ceremonies at VA National Cemeteries from across the country will be posted below as they occur on Memorial Day (May 25, 2020). Also you may be interested in:
