This ceremony pays tribute to all of our country’s servicemen and servicewomen, regardless of what conflict they served in.

Washington National Cathedral to Host Weekend Veterans Tribute
Ahead of Veteran’s Day, Washington National Cathedral will pay tribute to the service of the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, veterans and their families in a weekend-long tribute from Friday, November 7 until Sunday, November 9.
The highlight of the weekend will be a Veterans Tribute and Concert, which will include a performance by “The President’s Own,” Marine Corps Orchestra. Wartime letters selected from the Center for American War Letters at Chapman University will also be read aloud to honor those who paid the ultimate price and those who have returned.
As part of its programming, the Cathedral will host a Friday morning interfaith prayer breakfast (by invitation only), featuring a keynote from United States Navy Admiral Michael Mullen, former chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff. On Sunday, a Remembrance service held in collaboration with the British, Canadian, French, German, Australian and New Zealand Embassies will mark the centennial anniversary since the beginning of World War I. Passes are required for the service.
The weekend’s program is part of National Cathedral’s Veterans Initiative, an ongoing effort to pay tribute to those who have served, offer a space for healing to veterans and their families and to educate the public on the experience of military families during and after active duty.
