Description

Monday, May 27, 11am

National Cemetery Administration hosts Memorial Day ceremonies at VA national cemeteries across the country with the help of local communities. Each cemetery and community will add their own special touch of patriotism and "thanks" during the events.

Formerly known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day commemorates U.S. service members who died while on active duty. First enacted to honor Union and Confederate soldiers following the American Civil War, it was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.

Local office: 214/467-3374
Regular visitation hours: Open daily from sunrise to sunset.

Free admission, free shuttle available from the parking lot at The Potter's House (thepottershouse.org)
