Laying the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers



September 14, 2018, the AMA Alumni Association and Foundation will be laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.

The ceremony is scheduled for 12:15 PM.

AMA Friends and Alumni should muster at the Memorial Display Room. The room is located between the amphitheater and the Tomb. Muster at 11:30 in order for the group to have time to make their way to The Tomb. The ceremony starts at 12:15.

A luncheon at the Congressional Club is offered to all who attend the ceremony. The cost is $50 per person, and payable in advance by August 13th.

Reservations and payments can be made to Heather at the Museum. No reservations will be accepted after August 13th.

In 1997, AMA Alumni association laid a wreath and had about 30 alumni and friends attend the ceremony.  Please attend if you are able.  This is a once, perhaps twice in a lifetime opportunity to actively witness one of the most solemn ceremonies you will ever see.

It is important that everyone planning to attend read and understand these four documents which outline the cemetery security, Arlington’s visitor rules, dress code, and the sequence of events for the ceremony.
