Graveside Memorial and Wreath Ceremony

Arlington National Cemetery

May 22, 2010

May 4th marked the fifth anniversary of the passing of Colonel David “Hack” Hackworth.  His legacy will be honored at a gravesite memorial, 2:00 p.m., May 22, 2010.  Following the gravesite memorial at 3:15 p.m., family and members of the Soldiers For The Truth Foundation  will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery to honor the fallen.

This event is open to the public and we cordially invite you to join us as we commemorate Hack’s life and legacy—his steadfast commitment to protecting America’s greatest treasure, its fighting men and women. Your support of the same issues Hack fought for over the years is a testimony to his legacy and vital to SFTT’s continuing his noble mission.

Since his passing, SFTT has continued to carry the torch and keep the public and our leaders focused on the critical need to provide the best-available equipment to our troops while also working to correct training and leadership shortfalls.  Your joining us helps strengthen our determination to keep all Hack stood for alive.
