Landes will read and present the school with a copy of the joint resolution that was passed by the Virginia House of Delegates honoring the life and service of Mr. Yount.

The Alexandria parade is the oldest and largest such event in the nation.

It is during this First Formation ceremony that the Corps of Cadets is officially formed for the new academic year. The 2017 – 2018 Battalion Commander and Company Commanders will be announced and subsequently charged with leadership of the new Corps.

FMS Alumni, FMS Families and Friends are all welcome to attend.
