Honoring and Remembering

November 9, 2012

Nov. 11 is recognized as Veterans Day in the United States and Remembrance Day in Canada. NTA adds its voice to the millions who honor and recognize those who have served their countries. 

In the United States, the day is marked by memorial services and wreath-laying ceremonies, perhaps the most notable at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery, near Washington, D.C., followed by an observance in the cemetery’s Memorial Amphitheater. (The ceremony begins at 11a.m.; cemetery officials suggest visitors should be at either the Tomb of the Unknowns or the amphitheater by 9:30 a.m.)

The official Canadian national ceremonies are held at the National War Memorial in Ottawa, Ontario, beginning at 11 a.m. Most of the city’s retail businesses are closed until 12:30 p.m., and at 11 a.m., buses will pull over to the side of the road to observe two minutes of silence
