Two major annual remembrance ceremonies take place at Arlington National Cemetery's Memorial Amphitheater, on Memorial Day (last Monday of May) and Veterans Day (November 11). Some 5,000 visitors attend each of these national ceremonies, which are sponsored by the U.S. Army Military District of Washington. The president of the United States typically delivers an address at the Memorial Day ceremony.  

Also throughout Memorial Day Weekend visitors can also experience "Flags In" - when during an approximately three-hour period, the soldiers place flags in front of the approximately 220,000 headstones and at the bottom of about 7,000 niche rows in the cemetery's columbarium courts and the niche wall.
