Leading up to the 150th anniversary of the Force on May 23 2023, the RCMP Veterans' Association, Ottawa Division, invites you to an annual commemoration held at the RCMP National Memorial Cemetery at Beechwood.
Reveille at 6:00 on May 23, 2020 starts the day with the bugler’s call. With the rising of the sun, serving members and Veterans start the vigil. Every thirty minutes, a Piper leads the changing of the sentries and a call is sounded by bugler.
At 11:00, all gather for the Vigil ceremony to remember the RCMP Members. Wreaths will be placed to remember those who have served Canada so diligently and that our thoughts are also with their families who support them.
