US Branch 25 – 90th Anniversary

As US Branch 25 embarks on its 90th anniversary year, it might be interesting to revisit the words of our late Comrade Howard Cavil, President of Branch 25 in 2001 about the branch’s 70th anniversary.

At present, the branch sits at approximately 40 members (or about 20 less than in 2001).  We still maintain our obligations…  The maintenance of Greenlawn Cemetery in Colma where we hold an annual US Memorial Day service and Liberty Cemetery in Petaluma where we host an annual Remembrance Day service.  We participate in the annual Petaluma Veterans Day parade, Service of Remembrance at Grace Cathedral, and Wreaths Across America events.  We sponsor a local naval sea cadet corps (without whom we would not be able to do the above mentioned).  Finally, we continue to “render assistance to members in need, to protect and honour the memorials to those who served, and to do what is necessary to present a positive image of Canadian heritage.”
