The Navy SEAL Museum’s annual Memorial Day Ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. May 28 at the museum’s Memorial Wall.
The Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce has a longstanding tradition of observing Memorial Day with a commemorative ceremony to honor those who have died in defense of their country. The service will open with statements from Rick Kaiser, executive director of the museum, and continue with an invocation and the unveiling of the names of the SEALs who have died in combat or training this past year.
“The Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce is the only museum in the world dedicated solely to SEALs and their predecessors,“ said Kaiser. “Our Memorial Wall is an important reminder of the Frogmen who lost their lives from World War II to the present day, but our Memorial Day Ceremony is an opportunity to honor all servicemen and women from every branch of the military who have made the ultimate sacrifice.”
Daniel M. Robinson will serve as the guest speaker. As a Gold Star Father, Robinson is an avid speaker and active supporter of Gold Star Families. He lost his son, Senior Chief Special Operator Heath Robinson, in Afghanistan on Aug. 6, 2011.
