Memorial Day 2000

MRFA Memorial Dedication



The association will dedicate the Mobile Riverine Force Memorial on Saturday, May 27, 2000, at Fort Snelling National Cemetery, with a wreath laying and honor guard. The association will place a wreath honoring the 9th Infantry Division Memorial, which is already established. Both memorials are in memory of all our fallen comrades and all those who served in the Mobile Riverine Force and the 9th Infantry Division (Vietnam).

The association will be using the Day’s Inn/Airport by the Mall of America, 1901 Killebrew Dr. Bloomington, MN. for our stay. The cemetery is located 5 miles from the Day’s Inn. You can make your reservations by calling 800-558-5051. Be sure to mention you’re with the Mobile Riverine Force Association. The dates are May 25th through May 29th, 2000. Room cost is: Single (1) Bed $75.00 , Double (2) Beds $85.00. Note: most hotels don’t know how many people use a room, so it’s no big deal if 3 or 4 people use one room. The hotel has free shuttle service to and from the airport. Call 612-854-8400 for shuttle service. The Mall of America is located across the street from the Day’s Inn, one of the largest malls in the country, if not the largest. All reservations must be made by April 25th, 2000. All room reservations made after this cut-off date will be on a space and rate available-basis only.
