AM   Graveside Only

Notes:

Proceed from Memorial Bridge up the boulevard and tell the guards in the road you are there for a funeral.  They will ask the name.  You will then proceed further toward the Women's Memorial and take a left.  You will then take the second left and park.  Meet the other singers in the Admin Building.  If a warmup/rehearsal is done, it should be done outside to the rear of the building.  An ANC representative will tell everyone when it is time to line up in a convoy to the burial site.  Usually there is a stop along the way to transfer the remains from civilian vehicle to the Honor Guard.  Many choose to walk from that point, HOWEVER, you cannot leave your car at the transfer point.  Once the transer is made, the convoy proceeds to the burial site and cars should line up two by two to save space and walking distance.  The WPAGC is ONLY allowed to sing once the Arlington Lady is escorted from the ceremony.
