SFA Chapter 41 Memorial Day Ceremony
May 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This Memorial Day, our Chapter will host a small ceremony to honor the fallen, at a local site with Special Forces significance. We’ll gather at the memorial statue of SFC Nathan Chapman, the first service member killed during Operation ENDURING FREEDOM in Afghanistan. At the time of his death shortly after the invasion of Afghanistan, SFC Chapman was assigned to 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne) and detailed to a special mission.
SFC Chapman’s parents previously lived in Williamson County, which led to the creation and dedication of a memorial statue in Georgetown, located in a small plaza just outside of the Williamson County Justice Center. (See photo below.)
After the ceremony, we will adjourn to the Tejas Meat Supply restaurant to enjoy their delicious sandwiches and raise a frosty beverage to the fallen.
Please join us in honoring our teammates who have gone before us, and all those who have sacrificed for our country!
Who may attend? Please invite any and all friends and family that are interested in attending, especially any Special Forces qualified individuals who reside in the area but may not be a chapter member.
