Near the line between West Seattle and White Center in the Delridge Triangle, that plaque marks a tribute to veterans. This Veterans Day 2010 afternoon, a new flag flies over it:
It only happened with the help of a Seattle Fire Department crew, from Ladder 13.
“Mac” McElroy from nearby Mac’s Triangle Pub, who shared the photos, says someone who used to tend the flag isn’t able to do it any more, so he sought help in replacing it with a new one for Veterans Day – and SFD responded. Mac is a veteran too, by the way. And he’s trying to find out who can help get the flagpole area re-lit: “The city has been unable to help, as has the VFW. But it should be lit at night or taken down each evening.”
