ADVS to commemorate Memorial Day virtually
Due to COVID-19, the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services will commemorate Memorial Day virtually this year. ADVS operates three Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemeteries (AVMCs) in Sierra Vista, Marana and Bellemont. Memorial Day events normally include group flag placements at gravesites and public ceremonies.
This year, ADVS will continue to respectfully honor veterans through a virtual Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 25, 2020 at 9 a.m. The ceremony will stream on Facebook and YouTube. The ceremony will include traditional elements, such as the National Anthem, guest speakers, a moment of remembrance and more.
