Many shipmates took a tour by bus which included a number of stops. First, and to many the most important, was the US Navy Memorial including a wreath laying ceramony at the Lone Sailor and an opportunity to see the plaque placed on the wall honoring LTJG Holder and the ships named after him. There was a stop at the Capital that included a guided tour, then a lunch break at Tony & Joe's Restaurant in Washington Harbor.
