Veterans Day Wreath laying and Tour of the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor
Veteran’s Day began as Armistice Day to commemorate the ending of combat in World War I. Since 1954, it has been known as Veteran’s Day to honor all those who have served in the Armed Forces. In keeping with this tradition, the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor will conduct a brief ceremony and wreath laying at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, November 10th in commemoration of Veteran’s Day. This ceremony will take place outside, weather permitting by the flag poles at the Hall of Honor.
Following the wreath laying visitors are invited to take a guided tour of the Hall of Honor to learn more about the history preserved here and the connection of the Purple Heart to this site.
The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor is located at 374 Temple Hill Road (Route 300) New Windsor NY 1255. three miles south of I-84 exit 7B and I-87 exit 17
