VA to Host Memorial Day Events Nationwide at National Cemeteries

The 155 national cemeteries managed by the Department of Veterans Affairs will be open from dawn to dusk throughout Memorial Day weekend, and more than 130 will hold ceremonies to mark the day of remembrance for those who died in service to the U.S.

The VA is inviting all veterans, family members, survivors and the public to the ceremonies, which Under Secretary for Memorial Affairs Matt Quinn said will "honor those heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice to our country."

"We can never underestimate or under-appreciate the sacrifice made by the brave men and women who died in service to the country. Likewise, it is our duty to show appreciation to our Gold Star family members. We can never repay them for their sacrifices," Quinn said Monday during a call with reporters.
