Massing of the Colors - May 6, 2012 at Ft Meade

posted Jan 31, 2012 11:16 AM by Adjutant Cummings-Behlke Post

Greetings American Legion member:

The General George G. Meade Chapter of the Military Order of the World Wars cordially invites your chapter to participate in a Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony and the Twenty-Sixth Annual Massing of the Colors at the Fort Meade Pavilion, at 2:30 PM, on Sunday, May 6, 2012.   
 
The Massing of the Colors is a patriotic ceremony held to rededicate faith in the United States, and to demonstrate the Military Order of the World Wars’ support of our Armed Forces. It includes the colors and color guards of Active, Reserve, and National Guard military units; veteran, civic, and patriotic organizations; ROTC units; auxiliary organizations; state militias; first responder organizations; and Boy and Girl Scout organizations.  These participants assemble, enmasse, under their own banners in a patriotic ceremony to provide a living tribute to our heritage and a memorial to all those who helped preserve it. It is a memorable event that symbolizes the ideals of patriotism and love of country, which your organization also honors. 

The ceremony will begin promptly at 2:30 PM.  Colors Guards are to assemble by 1:30 PM in the designated assembly area at the Fort Meade Pavilion. Each Color Guard will be identified and announced as it marches forward.

Family and friends are most welcome to attend the ceremony. Refreshments will be served immediately after the ceremony.  Please respond to this email by April 30, 2012.  This will greatly facilitate final planning.
