Naval Station Everett

You’ll need to RSVP to attend the Memorial Ceremony.

Naval Station Everett will host a Memorial Day ceremony on Thursday, May 26 at 7:50 a.m.

The ceremony will be held on base in the Jackson Plaza courtyard, beginning with the observance of morning colors. Military veterans from all branches are invited to attend with their families.

This event is not open to the public. However, the Navy welcomes the many veterans and family members in the community to participate.

The ceremony will be held in honor of Memorial Day and will also commemorate the Battle of Midway, America’s legendary naval victory in the Pacific that turned the tide of World War II.

The event will include remarks from veterans and sailors will present stories of fallen naval heroes. A ceremonial wreath will be placed in symbolic tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice and changed the course of war.

Interested veterans and their families are asked to RSVP sending an email to NSE.RSVP@NAVY.MIL by Wednesday, May 25.

Those who do not already have a military identification card will be asked to provide their full name, driver’s license state and number, and date of birth along with their RSVP.

    This will be an honor to attend and me and my family will attend and pray for my fellow brothers and sisters. They will never be forgotten . It’s so much more personal when u can put a name a face and a family behind the memory. But as long as they are remembered and as long as we remain a free country their sacrifice was not made in vain . Love u all. Ooorah USMC 7th motors 1st Fssg Cco Cpl. B

    Politician’s who are not veterans stay away. This isn’t time for your photo opp. If you want to honor any veteran go visit Landstuhl regional medical center in Germany while on your next boondoggle and walk the hallway and visit each room and say high to the “Lucky Ones”.
