ON-Lion Letter
On Memorial Day -- Monday, May 30 -- along Constitution Avenue in Washington, D.C., the American Veterans Center's (AVC's) National Memorial Day Parade will salute our military and fallen heroes from the American Revolution through Afghanistan and Iraq.

In its 12th year, the event shares stories of American honor and sacrifice.  Our nation's largest Memorial Day event, it draws hundreds of thousands of spectators to the National Mall to pay tribute to those who have served, are serving, and most importantly, those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while in service to our country.

The National Memorial Day Parade is a moving timeline of American military history.  It draws on the tradition of Memorial Day parades, going back to the beginning of the holiday just after the Civil War, to create a family-friendly event aimed at calling attention to the true meaning of Memorial Day.

Bradley Prize recipient Gary Sinise will be one of the parade's special guests.

It will be viewable on the Reelz Channel, News Channel 8, Military.com, the American Forces Network, Defense TV, and AVC's own website at 2 p.m. Eastern/1 p.m. Central time.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports AVC.
