The USA KIA/DOW Family Foundation (USAKIA) plans a first-ever Memorial Day ceremony at Moss Landing, California, honoring U.S. killed in action (KIA) and died of wounds (DOW) from all American actions, May 29, 2006.

The USA KIA/DOW Family Foundation (USAKIA), in conjunction with J&S Surplus & Outdoor Store, plans a Memorial Day, 2006, ceremony. Official Memorial Day 2006 falls on Monday, May 29. The event will take place on May 29, 2006, from 9AM to 5PM, with a National Moment of Remembrance at 3PM. A musician will play Taps, and there will be a flag raising ceremony after.

The site, officially opened in a ceremony last Labor Day Weekend, is at Highway 1 and N. Struve Road in Moss Landing, California. USAKIA invites the public to a free, and somber event honoring our nation’s KIA and DOW. The nonprofit has also invited vendors and other organizations to participate.

The public-benefit corporation also has an eBay auction coinciding with Memorial Day Weekend. Items up for auction include vintage Disneyland Tickets, art work, and items to honor our nation’s fallen. Supporters can access the nonprofit’s store and also make tax-deductible donations at its Web site.

The USA KIA/DOW Family Foundation (USAKIA), based in San Jose, California, is an IRS-approved, tax-deductible and tax-exempt nonprofit. KIA families incorporated the 501(c)(3) organization in the fall of 2003 to benefit families of those killed in action and died of wounds while in the U.S. armed forces. Current services include memorials, membership, and it plans a new California Medal of Honor Project (CAMOHP). It also has products honoring U.S. KIA. America Remembers KIA allows USAKIA the use of its trademarked KIA flag and symbol. See the organization's Web site at http://www.usakia.org for further information. USAKIA opened a pressroom at its Web site in December and two new blogs in March.
