Honor Veterans at Folger Park

Event to Be Live-Streamed


Join in honoring our hometown heroes tomorrow at 11 a.m. in Folger Park at the corner of 3rd and D Streets SE. American Legion Post 8 Commander Jason Secrest invites everyone to its annual Veterans Day ceremony to remember all those who have served and sacrificed for our country.

The hour-long program includes gathering music by the DCFD Emerald Society Pipes & Drums, presentation of colors by U.S. Air Force Color Guard, and national anthem and armed forces medley by the US Army Brass Quintet.

DC Ward 6 Councilmember Charles Allen will offer remarks and award-winning NBC News4 I-Team investigative reporter Scott MacFarlane is the quest speaker.

Due to citywide requirements and restrictions, standing room only will be available on the perimeter of the event. All are respectfully asked to follow current masking and social distancing directions.
