Commission officials confirm that despite another day of sweltering heat, the official ceremonies will begin as scheduled in the Great Tent at 2:00 P.M. Veterans are being urged to arrive in an orderly fashion. Approximately 13,000 seats are available in the Great Tent, meaning that many of the veterans who choose to attend as well as the spectators will be required to stand.
Medical officials and Boy Scouts will be on hand to assist anyone needing assistance.
