Sunrise Wreath-Laying Ceremony
To start the week-long observance of the Philippine Veterans Week, the Sunrise Wreath-Laying Ceremony will be held at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Libingan ng mga Bayani, Taguig City. Traditionally, this event provides an opportunity for the Filipino veterans to honor their fallen comrades and for the families of these veterans to do the same.
Customarily, soldiers and civilians, veterans and the youth, gather in this symbolic event to offer flowers to those who have offered their lives in the altar of freedom amid the majestic rising of the sun in the horizon, which symbolizes the dawning of a new era of freedom, peace, and democracy. However, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the event will be limited to a number of persons and will be shown virtually via the official PVAO Facebook page.
