退伍军人节 (Veterans Day) :1111

让我们向战争退伍军人致敬!今天是退伍军人节,有成千上万人会到位在弗吉尼亚州阿灵顿国家公墓内的无名士兵墓缅怀他们的奉献。早上11点钟,一名护卫会代表所有军人向坟墓举枪致敬 (Present Arms) 。而总统花环也会被放在坟墓之上,以象征国家永远记得这些为国捐躯的士兵。接着,号兵会走向前吹奏熄灯号 (Taps) 。在退伍军人节的仪式完成后,人们会在附近的露天剧场举办演讲与其他纪念活动。每年的1111日都会举办相同的仪式,这一天是美国为了纪念那些参与对外战争,而为国捐躯的男、女士兵所订定的国定假日。


Give a salute to war veterans! It's Veterans Day, when thousands of people will visit the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia. At 11 a.m., a color guard representing all military services will execute "Present Arms" at the tomb. A presidential wreath will be placed on the tomb, symbolizing the nation's remembrance of all those who died fighting for their country. A bugler will step up and play "Taps." After this Veterans Day ritual, ceremonies will continue in the surrounding amphitheater with speakers and tributes. This event takes place every year on November 11, the official holiday in the United States honoring veterans of the armed forces and the men and women who have served in the country's wars.
