The lighting ceremony consists of a short video and ranger talk. The ranger asks for veterans to come up on stage. The American flag is passed amongst the vets, and each vet participates in the folding of the flag. Once this is done, the monument is illuminated. The whole process takes about 30 minutes or so.
