  Memorial Day Monday, May 29, 2006
Stepping off at 10:00 am

On Independence Avenue in Washington D.C.


In 2004, an ad hoc association of veterans groups joined together to organize a "Parade Salute to World War II Veterans" in Washington, DC. Mayor Anthony Williams served as Grand Marshall.

The three-hour parade was so successful that the Mayor expressed his hope that this would become a yearly event. Now, for the first time since World War II, a Memorial Day Parade will once again become an annual tradition in the Nation's Capital.

In what will prove to be a magnificent salute to American's veterans and those who died in defense of our ountry, the National Memorial Day Parade will assuredly be an event to remember.
