Video: New post commanders lead West Seattle Memorial Day 2013 @ Forest Lawn – ‘Remember their sacrifices’May 27, 2013 at 4:04 pm | In Holidays, West Seattle news | 5 Comments
While this afternoon’s Memorial Day ceremony at Forest Lawn (WSB sponsor) represented the event’s 86th year, it was also a first, for new commanders Kyle Geraghty of American Legion Post 160 (below left) and Nick Sullivan of VFW Post 2713, both headquartered in The Triangle (below right):
The day’s persistent rain paused just before “Taps”; as we do each year, we recorded video of the ceremony in its entirety, as all were exhorted to remember the sacrifices made by those who served:
Tenor Ross Hauck sang the national anthem and “America the Beautiful“; Pete Kirkman and Greg Lyon echoed “Taps.” And as always, the flags and crosses marking veterans’ graves were the work of Boy Scout Troop 284.
Sorry, comment time is over.
