THE WOODLANDS, TX – The Woodlands Township invites residents to the Memorial Day in The Woodlands event on Sunday, May 26, 2024 at Town Green Park, 2099 Lake Robbins Drive, from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Memorial Day in The Woodlands honors all the military service men and women who lost their lives while serving in the U.S. military. Keynote speaker Brigadier General Brandi Peasley, United States Army Reserve, commanding general of the 451st Expeditionary Sustainment Command, will be in attendance along with the AUSA Houston Honor Your Hero Ceremony. This ceremony honors individuals who enter the U.S. military to protect and provide for our beloved nation. Attendees will witness the swearing-in and initiation ceremony as these young people begin a life of dedication and sacrifice.

Snyder. “This event has profound significance as our community’s heartfelt tribute to the brave individuals who sacrificed everything while serving in the U.S. military. Let us come together on this day to remember and honor their courage and selflessness.”
