The Department of Enterprise Services has issued permits for three Veterans Day ceremonies that will be held on the Capitol Campus Wednesday, Nov. 11.
The first ceremony of the day – scheduled from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m. – will take place on the campus grounds near the Capitol Building. It will include the laying of a wreath at the Winged Victory Monument, which honors those who served in World War I, and brief remarks by Gov. Jay Inslee.
Another ceremony – sponsored by the Sacajawea Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution – will take place from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, which is near the Insurance Building. This ceremony will include the reading of the names of the more than twelve hundred state residents who were killed or went missing during the Vietnam War.
The third event is the Thurston County Veterans Council's annual Veterans Day ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda. This ceremony, which is scheduled from 11 a.m. to noon, includes musical performances and cannon and rifle salutes near the north stairs of the Capitol Building.
Parking is free on the Capitol Campus on holidays.
