I am a Vietnam veteran and a retired elementary school teacher in the Clover Park School District. Unfortunately I will be out of the state tomorrow when this opening event takes place. Otherwise I would be there. I have walked that sacred ground in past years. I commend Clover Park High School for this annual commemoration, and especially the teachers, for exposing young minds on the historical implications of our country’s past actions for the past 21 years. Whether you have done this before or not, I recommend walking through this “cemetery”. Read some of the names on the markers. Pause and reflect. Each of these people had parents, perhaps children, spouses, siblings. Honor them with your presence, your thoughts. There is a good reason this is presented on Memorial Day weekend.
I am always impressed with this. So glad it continues, and not dropped after a few years, like many things are.
