Arrangements have been made for our final farewell to our shipmate Robert “Dex” Armstrong.
The schedule is as follows:
9 January 2015 (All are welcome to all of these parts of the day. We would be so grateful for any who can join us.)
Reception/Visitation – All are welcome.
11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Women’s Memorial [at Arlington National Cemetery]: We will receive visitors and will have auditorium space that we will use in addition to a reception area where we will serve a catered lunch of sandwiches, etc. We will be speaking to eulogize Dad (Kris will also do so at the Chapel Service) and we would be grateful if anyone else would care to speak at the visitation. We have blocked off this long period for any to speak and visit with one another and to allow for time to get to the Old Post Chapel service afterward, which will involve getting aboard Ft. Myer.
2:15 Our family is to arrive at the Old Post Chapel, at Ft. Myer in advance of the service
2:30 Guests are asked to try to arrive at the Chapel (perhaps to wait in the parking area outside if another service is taking place – I am not sure how far they space these apart.)
Chapel Service, Old Post Chapel Aboard Ft. Myer, which of course is adjacent to Arlington Cemetery but will require leaving the cemetery and driving aboard the post.
3:00 – Approx. 3:20 p.m. Chapel Service – All are welcome.
Following the chapel service we will depart for the Columbarium for a brief service with military honors – All are welcome.
Thank you very much
