Join the Hampton Roads Chapter at Neptune's Park at sunrise on Memorial Day. We will have a moment of silence at sunrise, and then a run/walk down the Virginia Beach Boardwalk towards Rudee Inlet and back.
Even if you choose not to run or walk, please join us to take a purposeful pause in your busy lives. We will take a moment to remember our USNA brothers and sisters who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.
Be there by 5:40 a.m. (it will be light out by 5:20). Wear your Run To Honor gear, or something to commemorate your comrades. Run or walk, however fast or slow as you would like. This gathering is about fellowship and remembrance.

The Business Development Meeting aims to actively support USNA and other service academy alumni-owned businesses and service providers in the Hampton Roads area.
We leverage the inherent trust and commonalities of our shared values and Service Academy background to develop awareness of alumni businesses and promote the opportunity to mutually support one another in our respective business lines through referrals, business-to-business arrangements, and strategic teaming opportunities.
We facilitate mutual support and awareness through the monthly Business Development Meeting, an online alumni business directory, and various networking events.
The monthly meeting agenda allows for the introduction and promotion of each member's business as well as the opportunity for mentoring, education and relationship-building.
