On Memorial Day, the local vet organizations hold a ceremony at the capitol building here in Olympia. This year the commander from JBLM came and spoke, and there was a Russian delegation and their top person spoke. It was wonderful!
But where was our governor or even the lieutenant governor? It was apparently not important enough for them to come. He sent a message that really made no sense to anyone, who knows who read it.
There was no coverage by the newspaper or TV. It would be appreciated if they had been there. Perhaps some of our state and federal legislators had cared enough to come. This event is held every year at the same place. It would be wonderful if more people would put this on their important calendar for next year.
