There will be a press event from the main press riser in the Pentagon Memorial at sunrise (6:40 a.m.) just prior to the ceremony's start. At that time, the American Flag will be unfurled down the side of the Pentagon. Coverage is limited to 10 press, who must be on the credentialed list. Only the pool video camera will be allowed. Slots will be filled on a first-come basis.
The observance ceremony is open to still photographers and journalists, but pooled for TV/network outlets. No unilateral cameras are permitted this year. All media covering the ceremony must be on the credentialed list. Media interested in covering this event must RSVP by noon EDT Friday, Sept. 9, to be put on the credentialed list. Please respond to OSD.PA.DutyOfficer@mail.mil with name, outlet, position, email and phone number. Please indicate if you are covering the flag unfurling only, or the main observance ceremony only, or both.
Additional details regarding equipment pre-set time, security check-in times, parking, etc., will be provided to those on the credentialed list.
