Sunset ceremony

Sunset ceremony is the culminating activity of the Philippine Veterans Week. This is held at dusk during the last day of the week-long observance. Veterans, widows, children, and great grandchildren of veterans would commonly gather before the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, Taguig City like one big happy family.

In previous years, a Eucharistic Mass begins the event, followed by a solemn program where guests share their personal reflections on how their lives were touched by the veteran in their respective families. It ends with the mass recitation of “Pledge of Patriotism” and a signing of the same pledge, which is simultaneously held with a candle -lighting activity in honor of the veterans.
