Memorial Day remembrances

Hundreds gather to remember loved ones who were laid to rest

PORT ORCHARD — On a sunny Monday at Sunset Lane Cemetery in Port Orchard, hundreds of loved ones, many of them who served and sacrificed their lives in war, were remembered by family members and friends at the site’s annual Memorial Day Tribute.

The event was organized by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2669 in Port Orchard. Chaplain Roger Roth introduced Rick Bulman, a former Marine Corps sergeant and Vietnam War veteran, who shared his remembrances of working with veteran support groups over 20 years.
