Veterans Carillon back in service at
Miramar National Cemetery
After being out of service for several months, the Veterans Tribute Tower & Carillon bell is once again marking the hour. The Carillon also plays patriotic music throughout the day.
Contractors have completed repairs of the electrical system, and the Carillon music system has been reprogrammed.
Here is the daily music schedule:
0700 National Anthem
0830 U.S. Marine Corps Hymn
1210 Amazing Grace
1430 Patriotic random selections
1510 America the Beautiful
1610 Eternal Father Strong To Save (Navy Hymn)
1710 God Bless America
2000 Bugle Taps
The Veterans Tribute Tower & Carillon was financed and erected by the Miramar National Cemetery Support Foundation for the benefit of veterans, their families, and visitors to the cemetery. It is unlike any other at a VA-operated cemetery.
The 30-foot-tall Tower is dedicated to soldiers of the U.S. 15th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division who fought in the June, 1953, Battle of Outpost Harry during the Korean War. It also honors veterans of all U.S. military services.
