We are usually finished laying the wreaths by 1:30, but you are welcome to stay as long as you would like to enjoy the solitude and beauty of the cemetery.

Please arrive no later than 11:30 to participate in the ceremony which will begin at noon simultaneously around the country at over 2000 cemeteries. We lay the wreaths following our very solemn ceremony to ensure that everyone has a chance to participate in honoring the 18,846 soldiers buried in our cemetery.
