You are invited to join us for a celebration of Ray's life and burial January 5th, 2011.
Arlington National Cemetery
1 Memorial Drive, Arlington, VA
The service starts at 9am but you need to be there no later than 8:30am. If you aren't used to DC traffic, make sure you give yourself LOTS of time to get there.
When you enter the cemetery tell the guard that you are there for the Ray Vitkus funeral. The guard will then direct you to the Administrative building to line up. From there we will all process behind the casket to the burial site. He will be receiving a full military burial with the platoon escort, gun salute and band (weather permitting). Please dress warmly as it will be outside and cold.
Columbia Baptist Church
103 West Columbia Street
Falls Church, VA 22046-3482
A reception will be held at Columbia immediately following the burial service (Around 10:30am). This will allow us all to gather in the warm and share stories about Ray. Hors d'oeuvres will be served.
Please RSVP to Kerry at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend by January 1, 2011.
We hope to see you in January to celebrate an amazing man!
