The Libation Memorial Ceremony dates back to the age of the Romans. It is the pouring of a wine libation over the grave of a fallen warrior and asking him to drink in spirit with those present and serves as a link between the warrior and those present. Veterans in attendance are invited to participate in the ceremony.
