The Army will hold an intimate Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony at 10 a.m., Monday, at the Post Cemetery, at Schofield Barracks.

The public is invited to join U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii and the military community as they honor Army veterans and members of our sister services who gave their lives in service of our country.

Col. Daniel W. Whitney, commander, USAG-HI, will be the speaker for this event.

Representatives from the Military Order of the Purple Heart, Disabled American Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and American Legion will also participate, placing wreaths in the cemetery to honor fallen comrades.

Non-military guests should enter through Schofield’s Lyman Gate, off Kunia Road, and allow extra time to obtain a visitor pass.  Guests must provide a current driver's license, vehicle registration, proof of insurance and safety check.

In addition, all vehicle occupants 16 years of age and older must present a valid government form of identification, such as a drivers license or state ID card.
