The Captain Rocky Versace Plaza and Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial​ outside the Mount Vernon Recreation Center is one memorial honoring those who have died serving in the military.
ALEXANDRIA, VA — As Memorial Day approaches, families will celebrate the unofficial start of summer. That means backyard cookouts, vacations, or simply enjoying the three-day weekend.
Memorial Day is also a time to remember those who have died while serving in the military. There does not appear to be a Memorial Day Ceremony scheduled in 2021. The ceremony is typically held at the Captain Rocky Versace Plaza and Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial outside the Mount Vernon Recreation Center. The memorial is dedicated to Captain Rocky Versace, a posthumous Medal of Honor recipient, and the 66 other Alexandrians who died while serving during the Vietnam War.

Columbus Day, the second Monday of October, is recognized as a federal holiday honoring Italian Americans. But a growing number of states and cities are marking the day as Indigenous Peoples Day, a day that recognizes Native Americans instead.
The City of Alexandria formally recognized Indigenous People's Day in 2019 and 2020. This year, Gov. Ralph Northam issued a proclamation to recognize Indigenous Peoples Day on Monday, Oct. 12 for the first time in Virginia history. Virginia has 11 state-recognized Indian tribes, seven of which are federally recognized.

ALEXANDRIA, VA — Presidents Day will be Monday, Feb. 17, and a variety of services will be closed in Alexandria on the day.

ALEXANDRIA, VA — The City of Alexandria will recognize Veterans Day on Monday, Nov. 11 with a ceremony and schedule changes.
The 18th annual ceremony will take place from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mount Vernon Recreation Center, 2701 Commonwealth Avenue. The one-hour ceremony honors the 68 Alexandria residents who died during the Vietnam War and other military veterans. The 68 names are engraved in the Captain Rocky Versace Plaza and Vietnam Veterans Memorial and will be read aloud.
The tribute gives particular recognition to Captain Humbert Roque "Rocky" Versace, a posthumous Medal of Honor recipient, Ranger Hall of Fame inductee, Distinguished Member of the Special Forces Regiment, Distinguished Member of The Old Guard Regiment and Del Ray resident. Versace was taken as a Prisoner of War and was executed by the Viet-Cong, reportedly while loudly singing "God Bless America." He was posthumously given the Medal of Honor in 2002, the first time an Army POW received the nation's highest honor for actions in captivity.
