TriWest Hosts Military Heroes at National Memorial Day Parade
Date:5/22/2008

Recipients from World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War to Appear

WASHINGTON, May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- During World War II in October 1944, Private George T. Sakato and members of Company E, 42nd Regimental Combat Team were pinned down under heavy attacks from the enemy in Biffontaine, Germany. Despite intense enemy fire, Private Sakato single-handedly rushed the attackers. His charge inspired the squad to halt a counter-attack on the enemy, which killed members of his unit including his squad leader.

In memory of his squad leader and other fallen comrades, Sakato, along with Medal of Honor Recipients Robert L. Howard, John F. Baker, Jr. and Thomas J. Hudner, Jr., will participate in this year's National Memorial Day Parade at 2 p.m. on Monday, May 26 courtesy of TriWest Healthcare Alliance.

"Memorial Day is such an important holiday for Americans to honor the memory of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation," said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr. "It's also a time to honor our Service members still fighting and those who have fought to preserve our freedoms, such as our Medal of Honor recipients."

America's heroes will lead spectators in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at the start and then begin the parade procession, which begins at the corner of Constitution Avenue and 7th Street, travels down Constitution Avenue and ends at 17th Street.

Parade officials expect more than 150,000 parade spectators to attend. Actors Mickey Rooney, Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna will also ride in the National Memorial Day Parade as honorary marshals. For more information, visit http://www.nationalmemorialdayparade.com.

The Medal of Honor is the highest U.S. military award for valor; 3,465 have been awarded since 1862. There are only 105 living recipients today.
