Memorial Day Weekend was a bit different this year at Arlington due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The flags in our Field of Memories were still erected – minus the individual flag tributes – which in turn meant monies were not raised for Operation Ramp It Up for Veterans, a non-profit organization that benefits from flag dedication net proceeds.
Because we know how important it is to our families and visitors to be able to support Operation Ramp It Up for Veterans, we had donation envelopes available over Memorial Day Weekend along with Arlington’s commitment to match – dollar for dollar, those donations.
We are pleased to announce that, thanks to donations from our thousands of families and visitors, we presented a check for over $3,000 to Greg Schneider, President of Operation Ramp It Up for Veterans. Kudos to all of those who made donations to this very worthy cause that helps disabled veterans!
