Veterans Day, November 11th
Memorial services are held at the Veterans section at 11:00am.
Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.
Due to the historic nature of our cemetery, we have veterans resting here from the American Revolutionary War through current conflicts of our nation. There are 4,000 plus veterans at rest within the entirety of Clinton Grove Cemetery.
Join us, local veterans organizations and others as we pay tribute and honor the veterans at rest in Clinton Grove Cemetery. Services begin near our Veterans Flagpole in the Veterans Section.
