11th Hour Ceremony

Veterans Day began as Armistice Day, first commemorated in November 1919 to honor those who died in World War I. Now it honors veterans of all wars.

In conjunction with the FSU Army ROTC, the Veterans Day Parade pauses at 11 AM to honor the closing of the 24-Hour Watch at the Vietnam Memorial.

Your respectful silence is appreciated until the playing of Taps concludes. 

A 21 gun salute will mark the end of the ceremony.
