Tompkins County honors veterans who have served during wartime in many ways. Volunteers decorate veterans' gravestones with American flags on Veterans Day and Memorial Day. Parades include veterans and their supporters. At the "11 on the 11th" ceremony at DeWitt Park's War Memorial, attendees pay tribute to the fallen and their fellow soldiers.
