Wreath Presentation
Please join Flight #4 in a tribute to our departed brothers and sisters on Sunday May 26, 2019. Flight #4 will present a wreath on behalf of the National Organization at 1515 hours on 26 May, the day prior to Memorial Day. The solemn ceremony consists of Flight members escorted by Sergeant of Guard laying a Wreath in Daedalians Colors at the Tomb of the Unknowns. This year marks the 44th straight year Flight 4 has presented a wreath. Spouses and guests are welcome to join us in this remembrance to those "that have gone before." Sixteen original charter members rest in Arlington in addition to hundreds of former Daedalians. Although private organizations are now inhibited from presenting a wreath individually on Memorial Day, the Flight Board has selected the day prior to Memorial Day to continue our long tradition. Flight members are responsible for their own transportation to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We plan to have members with access shuttle to the Tomb as in the past. However, parking is available at the Visitors Center paid parking lot. Individuals with Arlington passes may drive to the Tomb. We will meet at the Tomb no later than 1445 for a briefing by the Tomb guards, for a 1515 Presentation. Please join us for this memorable event!
