2. Attend the National Memorial Day Parade
The annual National Memorial Day Parade, usually held just across the Potomac River from Arlington in Washington, D.C., shares the story of American honor and sacrifice from across the generations. It’s the nation’s largest Memorial Day event, and in a normal year brings together thousands of people to pay tribute to those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice while in military service to the United States, as well as those who are serving and have served. Due to continued protocols, the 2021 National Memorial Day Parade will be filmed for television only, and will not be open to the public. Please enjoy the show, and we look forward to the public’s return to Constitution Avenue on Memorial Day, 2022!
3. Attend the Annual Women's Memorial Day Program
Located at the entrance of Arlington National Cemetery, the Military Women’s Memorial is the only major national memorial honoring all women who have defended America throughout history. The organization is proud to recognize their devoted patriotism and bravery as an integral part of the United States’ national heritage. The Military Women's Memorial traditionally hosts an annual Memorial Day Ceremony. Although details have not yet been announced for the 2021 ceremony, check their website and Facebook page for updates.
