2009 Memorial Day Rally

by SofS Staff - January 27, 2009

Join us May 23-25 in Washington D.C. for our Third Annual National Memorial Day Rally





STORIES OF SERVICE invites youth from across America to join us in Washington, D.C. over Memorial Day weekend to honor the legacy of those who served and sacrificed on behalf of our nation.

To be eligible to participate, youth must help a veteran (or other individual who served our nation) to create a personal “Digital Story” video about that person’s service (visit www.stories-of-service.org for examples). In particular, we encourage youth to help preserve the rapidly fading stories of the World War II generation, before they are lost forever.

Youth participants who submit a project to our website by April 9, 2009, are eligible to join us in our nation’s capitol over Memorial Day weekend (May 23-25) for a series of commemorative activities, including:

  • Saturday, May 23: Gold Star Reception and Legacy of Service Awards Banquet.
  • Sunday, May 24: Wreath-layings at the Vietnam, Korea, Marine Corps and other Memorials, including a special wreath-laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery.
  • Monday, May 25: March in the National Memorial Day Parade, followed by a public rally at the National World War II Memorial.
Join us as we salute those who served, honor those who sacrificed, and recognize the young people who are keeping their legacy alive!

More details are on the way; check back here soon!
