Arlington National Cemetery & US Wings Jacket Giveaway - May 2021
Special Memorial Day Encore Presentation from 2008
Each year more than 4,000,000 people come to visit. More than 300,000 reside here. Over 500 more are added each week. Near-mythological stories of valor, commitment, sacrifice and patriotism surround you as you walk the grounds. It is the location of the Tombs of the Unknown Soldiers. The official name is Arlington National Cemetery, but known simply as Arlington.
Join former host Gary Lillie and guest Michael Patterson, webmaster and founder of the website dedicated to the Arlington National Cemetery (www.arlingtoncemetery.com), as we honor those who have died for our country and for our freedom. Together we will learn more about them and the special place reserved for some of America’s finest. Note: Michael Patterson’s website is no longer actively administered.
The official website for Arlington National Cemetery is www.arlingtoncemetery.mil.

In a tradition that dates to the Civil War, we encourage spectators to “step off the curb” and join the procession to Davison Green.
There may be many US flags in the parade, you do not need to salute them all. Please respect our honor guard as they carry the US flag in this year’s parade. Please stand and salute.
