The program will feature the traditional "roll call" of fallen heroes, a 21-rifle volley, a "missing man" formation helicopter flyover, the riderless horse, the symbolic sounds of bagpipers playing Amazing Grace and buglers playing Taps. At the conclusion of the ceremony, family members will place a long stemmed rose near their loved one's name plate in the brass Memorial Wall.
