73rd Annual Memorial Day Service

The 73rd Annual Memorial Day Service will be on May 30, 2021 at 10:00 AM EDT.  This program, begun by Kei Kobayashi in 1948, is the longest running memorial service held at Arlington National Cemetery.  The theme, “Honoring the Legacy of Nisei Solders,” is in conjunction with the upcoming release of the “Go For Broke” stamp on June 3, 2021.  Due to COVID restrictions, a limited number of passes to the Memorial Day service will be available.  Co-sponsors for this event include the Japanese American Veterans Association and the National Japanese American Memorial Foundation.  You will be able to livestream this event on the JAVA Facebook.
