Medal of Honor Day Tour

March 25 @ 1:30 pm 3:30 pm

National Medal of Honor Day is observed every year on March 25 and is dedicated to Medal of Honor Recipients. Each branch of the U.S. military awards the Medal of Honor to those who have distinguished themselves “conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity” above and beyond the call of duty, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs official site.
 
Join us for a special two-hour walking tour on Friday, March 25, from 1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. We will explore the lives of 10 Medal of Honor recipients: eight from the Civil War, one from the Korean Expedition, and one from World War I. Attendees will be selected to carry flags that will be placed at each grave.
 
This event is free, though donations to the cemetery are greatly appreciated. Tickets are limited, so please sign up now. REGISTER

♦ A limited number of registrations for the tour are available so reservations are required.
♦ Tour will cover about 2 miles across moderate terrain over both pavement and grass.
