The Battleship will participate in the National Moment of Silence at 3pm ET by asking all guests and crew onboard to stop what they are doing and reflect on those that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our great nation.
The National Moment of Remembrance, established by Congress, asks Americans, wherever they are at 3 p.m., local time, on Memorial Day, to pause in an act of national unity for a duration of one minute. The time 3 p.m. was chosen because it is the time when most Americans are enjoying their freedoms on the national holiday. The Moment does not replace traditional Memorial Day events; rather, it is an act of national unity in which all Americans, alone or with family and friends, honor those who died in service to the United States.
We ask all to observe this National Moment of Silence.
