The historic Washington Band starts at 1:30, and the service begins at 2:00pm. For your GPS use the address: 2 N Railroad Street, Annville, PA 17003.

The Indiantown Gap National Cemetery was established in 1976 and the 677-acre site currently serves as the national cemetery for the states of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Virginia and West Virginia.

Pennsylvania VFW State Commander Thomas M. Hanzes will deliver an address.
