Days of Remembrance Ceremony- 19 Apr 01
On the 19 of April 2001, The US Holocaust Museum in
Washington DC presented a Days of Remembrance Ceremony
in the Rotunda of The US Capitol Building. A number of 63rd
Infantry Division veterans and their families were invited to
attend in that this would be the first time that the Holocaust
Museum would officially display the 63rd Infantry Division Flag
designating our division as one of the thirty-four (34) US Army
divisions that liberated concentration camps during World War II.
The following photos were taken during the ceremony by your
webmaster. For some reason our flag didn't cooperate and
decided to remain furled for most of the day. But I did manage
to get a few photos and they appear below.
