Take the Pledge to #GoSilent this Memorial Day at 3:00 PM EDT
“We remember our fallen servicemen and women this Memorial Day. The best way we can honor their sacrifice is to pledge to support their families left behind and dedicate ourselves to finding peaceful solutions to our present day and future conflicts. We must address the root causes of war and violence, not with arms alone, but by recognizing our common humanity and helping people and nations meet their common desires for freedom and security.”
Chair, Progress For All
This Memorial Day, IAVA will lay a wreath before the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery, and later pause for a moment of silence at 3PM EST. Gather your friends and family across the country and pause with us for a national moment of silence to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
