The Air Force Association and the Air Force
Sergeants Association invite the public—military members, veterans, and
civilians—to join their commemorative Memorial Day wreath laying ceremony at 9
a.m., May 27, 2013, at the Air Force Memorial in Arlington, Va. This
annual event serves as an opportunity to demonstrate gratitude to the nation's
millions of veterans who have paid the ultimate price to ensure the freedom of
all Americans. The Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force James A.
Cody is the keynote speaker. Air Force, AFA, and AFSA officials will place several
wreaths at the Air Force Memorial, and Memorial Day cards honoring USAF's fallen
heroes will be on display. Additionally, joining in this year will
be representatives from the "Keep the Spirit of 45' Alive" program,
including their national spokesman retired Capt. Jerry Yellin. Directions
