CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Members of the Colorado National Guard will support Memorial Day events across the state with Colorado Air National Guard F-16 Fighting Falcon flyovers, a joint Wyoming-Colorado National Guard band concert, speakers, and other assets Memorial Day Weekend, May 28-30, 2022.

The Colorado Army National Guard 3rd Battalion, 169th Field Artillery will support the Colorado Freedom Memorial in Aurora, Colorado, with a ceremonial cannon salute at approximately 10 a.m., May 28, 2022.

The 101st Army Band will join with the 67th Army Band, Wyoming National Guard, to honor and salute World War II veterans with a Big Band- or Swing Band-style musical performance at the Veterans Plaza of Northern Colorado, Fort Collins, Colorado, 1-3 p.m., May 29, 2022.

“With the assistance of military musical professionals from Wyoming, the National Guard is proud to bring World War II-era music to Northern Colorado for this year’s Memorial Day observance,” The Adjutant General of Colorado U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Laura Clellan said.

Clellan will speak at a Memorial Day ceremony at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery of Western Colorado in Grand Junction, May 30, 2022.

Director of the Joint Staff U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Scott Sherman will provide a Memorial Day address at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver.

The COANG will fly over Memorial Day events May 30, 2022, in honor of those that made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation.

The 140th Wing will launch jets from Buckley Space Force Base, Aurora, Colorado, around 10:30 a.m.

The aircraft will perform flyovers over events in:

- Parker, Colorado, 10:45 a.m.

- Veterans Memorial Cemetery of Western Colorado, Grand Junction, Colorado, 10:50

- Fort Logan National Cemetery, Denver, 11:25 a.m.

- Bolder, Colorado, 12 p.m.

(Times are estimates and may very slightly)

Event coordinators from communities receiving flyovers requested support from the U.S. Air Force’s Aerial Events Office in Washington, D.C.

Flyovers are conducted at no additional cost to the taxpayer and serve as training for Air National Guard pilots.

The 101st will host a summer concert series during the months of June and July with stops in Colorado communities including Woodland Park, Colorado Springs, Peyton, Longmont, Windsor, and others.
