Rockville and Montgomery County residents who have retired from or currently serve in the United States military are eligible to take part in the ceremonies. Volunteer speakers must be comfortable speaking in public and must prepare a five- to seven-minute speech about their experiences in the armed forces, including what it means to serve and honor those who have served.
