2016 Mem Day - Yard Sign
Location:  ARMORY PARK - 1225 E. Henry Clay & Ardmore, Whitefish Bay, WI

The community is cordially invited to Whitefish Bay’s 5th Annual Memorial Day Ceremony. The ceremony will be an opportunity for Veterans to connect with one another and for the community to honor our country’s fallen service members. The event will also give Whitefish Bay families a way to teach children the meaning behind Memorial Day and to witness traditional military customs. The program has attracted nearly 800 Whitefish Bay residents and veterans each year, and has been a meaningful tribute to those who gave their lives serving our country.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Mr. Christopher Miorin, a U.S. Army combat veteran who served as an infantry platoon leader during Operation Iraqi Freedom, executive officer for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery, and as an Aide to the President of the United States at the White House. Mr. Miorin was awarded the Bronze Star Medal and the Combat Infantryman’s Badge for his service and is a graduate of the U.S. Army Ranger School.
