A ceremony will be held Monday morning at the DC war memorial on the National Mall to honor veterans and to{ }urge the inclusion of the District in the military's raising of the flags tradition.

D.C. delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton is pushing for a measure that would require the Armed Forces to display the D.C. flag whenever the flags of the 50 states are displayed.{ }

She’s upset that the Navy did not raise the city’s flag when District resident Jonathan Rucker graduated from the nation’s only naval boot camp.

Rucker’s parents will speak at Monday’s ceremony.
