A ceremony was held on the National Mall to remember those killed while fighting for the United States. Thousands of family members of those killed in Afghanistan and Iraq were joined by descendants of fallen troops of U.S. wars back to 1776.

A Gold Medal of Remembrance was presented to the children of those killed in Afghanistan and Iraq and a roll call of the names was read. Family members from each of America’s conflicts were introduced, including descendents of Nathan Hale from the Revolutionary War and Quentin Roosevelt from World War I.

The ceremony included a military flyover, Presentation of the Colors by an honor guard, prayers, music, and the ringing of a replica of the Liberty Bell. close
