Wreath-Laying Ceremony A Huge Success

We started off our 25th reunion year with a great event in Washington, DC — a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on Saturday, 24 May 2014.  The Fife & Drum Corps and the US Army Drill Team performed prior to the ceremonANC 2014 Wreath-Layingy.

COL James Markert (H2 ’89) was the Regimental Commander, 3d US Infantry Regt, “The Old Guard”, at the time and he coordinated with Dave Kammen (F1, ’89), Director of Operations & Plans at Arlington National Cemetery, to schedule this event.

Over 50 classmates aANC 2014 Groupnd even more family members attended the day’s events, ending up at the O-Club for a few drinks. Make sure to join us next time!  There’s no place like Arlington on Memorial Day Weekend.
