Veterans Day in Seattle 2014

Veterans Day 2014 8

Every Veterans Day, November 11th, at the Evergreen Washelli Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery in Seattle, we celebrate our veterans with a formal ceremony. You might remember last year’s photos.

Here are a few from this year, which was not quite as well attended. We should be fighting for space at such events, people! Sure, there was a biting cold slightly offset by a bright midday sun, and the wind threatened to turn the tents into hot air balloons. Consider what these men and women endured in the service of our country, though, and that puts spending an hour honoring them into perspective.

The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding go out to meet it. -Thucydides
