JEFF OLSON: Photo Gallery — Veterans Day, Arlington National Cemetery

The Veterans Day National Ceremony is held each year Nov. 11 at Arlington National Cemetery. The ceremony commences precisely at 11 a.m. with a wreath laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns and continues inside the Memorial Amphitheater with a parade of colors by veterans’ organizations and remarks from dignitaries, including the president. The ceremony is intended to honor and thank all who served in the United States Armed Forces. Alexandria, Va., photographer Jeff Olson had the opportunity some time there Friday. In his words, “A wonderful, moving day.”
