The Cornells were among a few dozen veterans and their families invited to a Veterans Day breakfast in the adjacent East Room prior to the traditional Presidential wreath laying and address at Arlington National Cemetery.

BVA joined approximately 35 organizations in similarly presenting a wreath at The Tomb of the Unknowns following the ceremony.
