Honoring Our Military
On Memorial Day, we honor those who served and reflect on the strong connection between the YMCA and the armed forces.

On Monday, May 27, the YMCA Retirement Fund will observe Memorial Day. This national holiday is an opportunity to remember the courageous men and women who served in the military and sacrificed their lives to protect our country.

Memorial Day also reminds us of the strong connection between the armed forces and the YMCA. The Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA) is a national member of the YMCA of the USA, exclusively focused on military families. For more than 150 years, the ASYMCA has provided hands-on, innovative, specialized programs and support services to military service members and their families.

The YMCA Retirement Fund is a proud supporter of the ASYMCA. As a non-profit organization, the ASYMCA does not receive funding from the U.S. government and is entirely dependent on private donations. With hundreds of thousands of service members deployed overseas, recognizing the daily sacrifices made by military families has never been more important. Learn more about the ASYMCA by visiting
