SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii — The Army will hold an intimate Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony at the Post Cemetery, here, May 30 at 11 a.m.

The public is invited to join in honoring Army veterans and members of our sister services who gave their lives in service of our country.

Col. Dan Misigoy, commander, U.S. Army Garrison Hawaii, will be the speaker for the ceremony. Representatives from the Military Order of the Purple Heart, Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Veterans and Gold Star Families will also participate, placing wreaths to honor fallen comrades. Prior to the ceremony, a group of Soldiers, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts will place small American flags at each headstone.

Visitors who do not possess a military ID should enter Schofield through Lyman Gate on Kunia Road, where they will be subject to an installation security background check. All vehicle occupants 16 years of age and older must present a valid state or government photo ID, and the vehicle driver must provide a current driver's license, vehicle registration, proof of insurance and safety check.

The cemetery is located on Lyman Road, just west of Humphreys Road, and easy to find with its white, wrought iron gates.
