29th Division Association Wreath Laying Ceremony
Arlington National Cemetery
Tomb of The Unknowns
Saturday, June 10, 2017
1215 EDT (12:15 PM)
The 29th Division Association’s annual wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier will take place on Saturday, June 10, 2017. The event is scheduled for 12:15 P.M. This solemn ceremony has been a tradition of the Association since the late 1940’s and each member is encouraged to attend and pay homage to our deceased comrades. This year, National Commander Robert E. Wisch and World War II veteran, Steve Melnikoff of Post #1-72, will have the honor of laying the wreath.
Following the ceremony, a delicious buffet lunch will be served by the staff of the Spates Community Center at Fort Myer, VA. Previous years the cost of the luncheon buffet was $20.00 on Sundays. Spates has discontinued serving food on Sundays and on Saturdays only a dinner buffet is available. The cost is $34.00 plus a 20% service charge. In order to have lunch at an affordable cost, the National Executive Committee has authorized that $10.80 will be subsidized per person lowering the cost to $30.00.
Please send your check for $30.00 per person made payable to “The 29th Division Association” and mail it to NED Will Mund, 441 Chalfonte Drive, Catonsville, MD 21228.
Once again the Maryland Region of the 29th Division Association will provide a 34 passenger bus at no charge for members and guests to attend the wreath laying ceremony and lunch at Spates Community Center. The bus will leave from Hammonds Ferry Road Park and Ride, off of the Baltimore Beltway Exit 8b, promptly at 10:00 A.M.
