America’s protectors and defenders, led by US Navy SEALs, will be walking 2,000 miles, from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, NY, to Dallas, TX, in order to renew and restore the true meaning of Memorial Day.
Starting on Tuesday, April 30, 2013, members of our military will leave West Point carrying tokens of remembrance to honor fallen heroes or to pay respects to veterans who have served in the U.S. military throughout America’s history. They will arrive in Dallas on May 26, 2013.
Walkers will arrive in NYC on the morning of Wednesday, May 1, 2013, and will enter the National September 11th Memorial at (approximately) 12:15pm for a short ceremony. The 9/11 community is invited to participate in the walk or to welcome walkers to the World Trade Center site. The walkers will include members of the military and combat veterans as well as first responders and survivors of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and the families of victims.
For those September 11th community members who would like to walk to the Memorial with the military, the walk will depart from 292 Madison Avenue (at 41st Street) at 10:00am.
To participate, you must RSVP to NeverForget@theBravest.com in order to be admitted onto the Memorial Plaza.
