Thanking our Veterans Past & Present

The Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site invites you to join us virtually for a 15 minute Veterans Day Salute to all American Veterans past and present on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at 8:45pm.

The Presidential Site is organizing a live virtual event to encourage distanced participation with a far-reaching impact. We will be hosting the Indiana National Guard 38th infantry division band live from our front porch in support of a tribute to ALL VETERANS, those still with us and those who have passed on.

We will broadcast the event from the Presidential Site on Facebook Live, but are asking music students and musically-inclined citizens across the State of Indiana to pick up their own instrument of choice and participate by playing Taps at exactly 9:00 pm from their own front porches. This will help make sure that our veterans in every corner of the state hear these notes of appreciation.

This musical program will start at 8:45 pm EST with a musical salute to living veterans with the Service Songs of each branch of the Armed Forces broadcast from the Presidential Site. At 9:00 pm EST, a lone bugler from the Indiana National Guard will sound Taps at the Presidential Site to honor all veterans who have passed on and we hope will be joined by musically-inclined citizens statewide.

We hope the bugle call inspires everyone who hears it to pause and reflect on the dedication and important service of our veterans, and how their efforts have helped preserve the American system of self-government we enjoy today. Please join us in this honoring of veterans past and present—and if you are a veteran, please know how grateful we are for your service!

“The flag cannot stand for the benevolent policies of an administration. It stands for more permanent things — for things that changing administrations have no power to change.” Benjamin Harrison
