ARLINGTON — The Arlington Cemetery at 20310 67th Ave. NE will serve as the site for a ceremony on Feb. 17 at 1 p.m. to honor military veterans who might not have received the full recognition to which they were entitled.
"More than 8,400 military veterans pass away every year in Washington state without receiving proper military honors," said Sgt. Jacob Smalser of the Washington Army National Guard Honor Guard program. "To give these veterans their initialed honors, members of the Army National Guard Honor Guard and American Legion Post 76 will be conducting a group memorial for the veterans of Snohomish County. It is our responsibility to make sure every veteran receives their deserved honors."
If you have any questions about this event, please contact Smalser at 360-815-0202.
