Event Details

On Memorial Day, May 29, 2017, our country honors our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines who have fallen, fighting for our nation: the ones who gave all, and those who are still unaccounted for.  This year, plan to attend the Memorial Day Ceremony at Quantico National Cemetery (QNC).

Four-Star Admiral (Ret) John Harvey will provide the keynote address.   Admiral Harvey is currently the Virginia Secretary for Defense and Veterans Affairs.   PRVC Chairman, Chuck Wilson, is the Master of Ceremonies.

The U.S Marine Corps band will begin playing a musical prelude at 10:30 AM with the ceremony starting promptly at 11:00. Over 1,500 people are expected to attend.

The Potomac Region Veterans Council (PRVC) has conducted both Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies dating back to 1983.  PRVC represents 26 Veteran Service Organizations and as many as 15,000 veterans across Northern Virginia.
