38th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service – FOP Lodge #4- Bus

May 15

The Memorial Service will be held on the West Front of the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.

The Service begins at 11:00 a.m. and is expected to run approximately 2 hours. The Wreath Laying Ceremony will be held immediately following the Memorial Service.

Uniformed credentialed personnel can have their weapons, but must go through US Secret Service screening on site for verification.

FOP Lodge #4 will be providing a bus to the memorial service. The bus (or two) will leave the Carney park and ride at 8am. ( Harford Rd and Jomat Rd) There will be food and refreshments provided. We will return back at the park and ride at 6pm. We have started a list here at the office. Please call and reserve your spot asap. Each bus holds 56 passengers, so seating is limited.

Please note: Service begins promptly at 11 a.m.

FROM Memorial Chair Lou Cannon:
I just received approval from US Capitol Police for the use of water trailers (buffalos) donated by Anheuser Busch for the Service on May 15th. I would like to ask that we get the word out as quickly and widely as possible for visitors to bring PLASTIC refillable water bottles to the service. AB is supplying cups but if attendees bring their own containers that will help with clean up and we can save the planet! It also saves us on purchasing water.
