2017 Memorial Day Ceremony in Great Falls, Virginia

The Great Falls Freedom Memorial 

On Monday, May 29, at 11:00 am, the annual Memorial Day ceremony will be held at the Great Falls Freedom Memorial to honor those who gave “last full measure of devotion” in service of freedom, including at least 25 citizens of Great Falls. The keynote speaker will be longtime Great Falls resident Robert D. Vickers, Jr., former CIA National Intelligence Officer and Vietnam Veteran. The event will also include patriotic songs, a raising of the flags by Boy Scout Troop 55, a wreath laying, a taps bugler, and a reading of the honor roll and bell-ringing for each of the 25 known Great Falls natives who have fallen in defense of our country.

The Freedom Memorial is located behind the Great Falls Library at 9830 Georgetown Pike. The ceremony is open to all. Ample parking is available in the library parking lot. In case of rain, the ceremony will move to the library meeting room. Limited seating will be provided. Attendees are encouraged to bring portable chairs.
