Veterans Day, Friday, November 11th, is an important time to honor all those who have served in the U.S. military. In the beginning of next month, our military bands representing the 5 branches of the armed forces will prepare for the rehearsal of the Veterans Day Ceremony.

Veterans day begins with an opening ceremony as the procession heads to the Arlington National Cemetery, followed by a very special presidential gun salute as the President makes his arrival to lay a wreath upon the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to honor our Veterans who fought for our country, America.

It will begin with the raising of the flag, our national anthem, followed by taps as President Obama remembers those who gave their lives in sacrifice to this great nation.

This special program will be broadcast live on C-Span TV beginning at 5:00 A.M., Hawaii standard time as all people will gather to ponder, and reflect on all those brave men and women who has fought for our freedom, and liberty.
