Memorial Day 2022

Thank you to all guests who attended our Memorial Day Ceremony in observance of this sacred day, with reverence for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We gather each year to honor and remember our servicemen and women who have died in the line of duty so that their legacy may live on forever.

Special thanks to our keynote speaker Jason Redman for his poignant and powerful words about sacrifice and responsibility. With gratitude to all who supported this special service.

Fallen, Never Forgotten, We Speak Their Names

Friends of the Museum,

On this Memorial Day, I ask that you take a moment to reflect and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. From the Frogmen of WWII, to the present wars, we take this day to look back with respect and honor for those who came before us.

As you observe Memorial Day, think about what this country stands for, and the freedoms that we all enjoy. These blessings were earned through the blood of those warriors!

We invite you to reflect on the greatness of our nation because of the great sacrifice of our Fallen Heroes. This Memorial Day, we have asked friends and Teammates from all over the nation to recite the names of each of the Frogmen who have died from World War II to present day. The Museum is grateful for their participation in the video here.

It has been said that a man dies twice. The first time is when he ceases to breathe. The second time is when his name is spoken for the last time. We honor our Fallen by remembering their lives. You honor them by sharing this video far and wide with your fellow Americans.

Fallen, never forgotten, we speak their names.

Long Live The Brotherhood.

Commander (SEAL) Grant Mann, USN (Ret)
Museum Executive Director
