Monday, May 31 at 11:00am to 12:00pm
We will honor the nearly 12,000 Virginia’s men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice defending our freedom and who served in the United States Armed Forces with guest speakers, patriotic music and recognition of the four names added to the Shrine of Memory in the past year.
Additionally, the awardees of the Marocchi Scholarship and the Armed Forces Day Art Contest will be announced.
