NATIONAL HARBOR, Md., May 22, 2019— National Harbor’s commitment to our armed forces will be celebrated on Memorial Day weekend, May 24 through May 27, with a variety of activities at the Waterfront District for military personnel, their families and supporters.

Kick-off the holiday weekend on Friday, May 24 with the Salute the Sunset Concert Series featuring Perishing’s Own at 7 p.m. on the Plaza stage. Saturday, May 25 and Monday, May 27 will feature Airmen of Note.  These outstanding performances by bands from the nation’s Armed Forces, will stir the hearts and souls of civilians and military personnel alike.

Also throughout the weekend, Flight Deck is offering Buy a Beer for a Solider. When ordering, guests will be invited to “pour it forward” by purchasing a beer for a soldier. Notecards will be on hand so guests can write a thank you note if desired.

Committed to providing an iconic, all-American experience, National Harbor is honored to offer a variety of special discounts exclusively for the military and their families. A full list can be found online at,

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
