74th Annual Memorial Day Service

JACL DC Chapter was honored to host the 74th annual Memorial Day Ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery (ANC). Along with our partners, the Japanese American Veterans Association, the National Japanese American Memorial Foundation, and the JACL National, we remembered the service and sacrifice of our veterans and their families.  In addition to the formal ceremony, we were able to visit over 100 sites at ANC and pay our respects.
