AHEPA Remembers: Arlington National Cemetery Visit
On Saturday, May 23, 2015, AHEPA
family members from the metro-Washington, DC area gathered to memorialize those identified as Greek
Americans or Greek Orthodox who are
buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
According to organizers, there are
roughly 660 grave sites at which
AHEPA and Daughters of Penelope
members presented a laurel wreath
and paused in remembrance of those
who perished for our nation. Members
from AHEPA Chapter 31, Washington,
DC, Col. Peter N. Derzis Chapter 438,
Arlington, Va., and Molon Lave Chapter
542, Dulles, Va., participated. This ceremony has been performed annually
since 1949.
"I commend the AHEPA family of
the Metro Washington DC area for its
carefully detailed effort to properly
honor and remember the memory of
those brave souls of our community
who sacrificed so much for freedom,"
Supreme President Phillip T. Frangos
said.
In June, Supreme President Phillip
T. Frangos laid a wreath at the Tomb
of the Unknown Soldier. Since 1924
Ahepans have returned annually to
Arlington to lay a wreath at the Tomb
of the Unknown Soldier on behalf of
a grateful American Hellenic community.
