May 30 - MEMORIAL DAY - 11am Memorial Day Service
Tampa 912 is encouraging members if they don't already have plans for Memorial Day, to consider attending the American Legion Post 5's annual Memorial service. This annual event is a moving tribute to the men and woman who gave it all for their country.
In years past, they've had a color guard, speakers from MacDill, wreath laying, bag pipes, singing and the 21 gun salute. The event will be followed by hot dogs and soda. It's an hour of somber respect and then celebration of our freedoms that have endured due to our service members willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Bring the whole family. Bring folding camp chairs and waters just in case. Seating in the past has been limited but there is a large shady area for overflow which is a perfect for camp chairs and has a good view of the activities.
Come a few minutes early to setup. The Memorial service starts at 11am sharp!
