The biggest ceremony may be on Sunday. It’s the Veterans Day program at Veterans Memorial auditorium in downtown Des Moines

It starts at 11:00 a.m. and the program is free and open to the public.

Also on Sunday, is a remembrance ceremony at the Iowa Veterans Cemetery near Van Meter. That begins at 8:00 a.m.

At AIB, there’s the Veterans History Project. Veterans will tell their stories that will be recorded and transcribed. The vets will get a DVD copy and it will also be sent to the Gold Star Museum in Johnston and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
