Veterans’ Day Watchfire

VETERANS’ DAY WATCHFIRE CEREMONY

Thursday, November 10, at 5 PM at the World War II Barracks on the Army Heritage Trail at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center, 950 Soldiers Drive, Carlisle, PA.

Light refreshments provided, no cost to attend.

The Watchfire ceremony marks the tradition of old, when armies would light fires at the end of a march or battle to help lost or straggling soldiers find their way home.  This Watchfire is an opportunity for Veterans to gather in fellowship to honor each other, our comrades in uniform, and the U.S. service men and women who have defended our nation throughout history.  Everyone welcome, RSVP APPRECIATED.  For questions or more information or to RSVP contact Jeff Hawks at eddirector@armyheritage.org or 717-258-1102.
