Thanks for strong Memorial Day event
Letters to the Editor
The annual Memorial Day service was held Monday, May 27, at the Medical Lake Cemetery with very good attendance. This was a special time to reflect and remember each of the 61 veterans from the Indian Wars, Civil War, World War I and World War II, Vietnam, Persian Gulf to the present time as well as other family and loved ones interred at the historic cemetery.
The flag was honorably presented by Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force Al McGowan, aerospace science instructor and the Medical Lake High School Junior ROTC color guard cadets: Boaz Guidry, Brandon Satcher, Katie McGowan, Holly Marsh and bugler Joshua Miller.
This cemetery was founded in 1888 and is the resting place of many historic families of the area. The peaceful cemetery on Thorpe Road sits on a hill overlooking beautiful fields of the area.
