The Sunday morning Veterans Ceremony is probably the most moving part of the entire rug show. The event honors all veterans including those in the audience. With a color guard and a striking rendition of the national anthem in Navajo, the ceremony begins on a stirring note. Many years we have been honored to have a Navajo Code Talker as our guest speaker, but as their numbers dwindle, we can't count on this. There aren't many dry eyes in the room as the Elders pray as a group for all veterans.
