A catered box lunch will follow shortly after in the National Chiefs’ Mess.

Other Activities at the Navy Memorial:  After the Plaque Ceremony, a guide will escort us to view the plaque, which will already be hung on the wall in the Heritage Center.  You are invited to view the many exhibits in the Gallery Deck, the Navy Memorials principle exhibit and reception area.  There will also be a short business meeting for shipmates in the National Chiefs’ Mess, which is adjoined to the Gallery Deck by retractable paneled doors.  The catered box lunch will follow the business meeting in the National Chiefs’ Mess.
