WHAT IS THE NATIONAL MEMORIAL DAY ASSOCIATION OF GEORGIA?
The purpose--the sole purpose--of our Association is to honor our Veterans, both past and present and to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We do this through a ceremony held every Memorial Day.
The Officers and Board of the NMDA, along with our Patron Members and Member Organizations, encourage you to honor our Veterans in a meaningful way this Memorial Day. And by joining and supporting the NMDA, you will help assure that this particular ceremony will continue for the years ahead and for generations to come.
