Memorial Day:
Perch Base will attend the Memorial Day ceremony at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona:
This is one of the two most important events of our yearly calendar.
Because of the large crowds at this event, and the scarcity of available seating, it is strongly urged that everyone get there no later than 7 a.m.
As in previous years, we will follow with the Tolling of the Boats in the Circle of Remembrance at the World War II Submarine Torpedo monument.
