Shipmates across the country will participate in Memorial Day ceremonies to pay tribute to America’s fallen heroes.

FRA’s East Coast Regional President Donald Hoover will represent National President Mark Kilgore at Memorial Day ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery on Monday, May 27. He will join other national leaders in honoring the men and women who have died in service to our nation by laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

Branches from the East Coast Region’s Central Liaison Committee are sponsoring a ceremony at the U.S. Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C., at 10:00 AM on Monday, May 27. 

On Saturday and Sunday (May 25 and 26), shipmates from around the D.C. area and members of the FRA National Headquarters (NHQ) team will staff an information booth at Rolling Thunder, an annual motorcycle tribute in the nation's capital to ensure that Vietnam POWs and MIAs are not forgotten.
