    The US Embassy and American Association of the Philippines will hold their annual Memorial Day ceremony earlier that Sunday, May 27 at the American Cemetery in Taguig City. It is open to the public and some members of Democrats Abroad plan to attend. The ceremony starts promptly at 8 and ends at 9. Best to be there by 7:30 to get a seat near one of the fans! A limited number of cars are allowed to enter and park or you can get dropped off at the entrance and either walk to the memorial or take a shuttle that will be circling back and forth.
