Remarks will be given by Chief Kenneth Adams, USAF (Ret.) of the Upper Mattiponi Tribe and a member of the Board of Directors of the Virginia War Memorial’s Educational Foundation. Also in attendance will be Native American veterans from recognized tribes in the Commonwealth. The Turtle Clan Drum of the Chickahominy Tribe will offer the veteran and victory songs. Most of the drummers are sons of veterans. Free and open to the public.
