DC Attorney General Karl Racine, Ward Six Council Member Charles Allen, and Ward 8 Council Member At Large Robert White, will be featured speakers at Capitol Hill’s Veteran’s Day Ceremony in Folger Park.  The ceremony will begin at 11:00am.  The park is located at 3rd and D Streets, SE, across the street from the Kenneth H. Nash American Legion Post #8, commanded by Jason R. Secrest, sponsor of the event. The Marine Corps band will be in attendance as well.  This year’s ceremony is being held to mark the 100th Anniversary of the end of WWI.

Commander Secrest says the event this year will be expanded to include static displays.  The Post will hold a reception in the Legion Post afterward.

    For those who have never been to the Veterans Day ceremony, staged by the Capitol Hill American Legion, believe me it’s the most moving experience.While all the ‘big shots’ are gathered at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier the true meaning of November 11 is just as equally seen and felt in Folger Park..
