Paying tribute over Memorial Day weekend

Hundreds of American flags fly in tribute to military veterans and loved ones.

PORT ORCHARD —American flags dotted the landscape of gravesites — including those of military veterans — on Memorial Day at Sunset Lane Memorial Park. Hundreds visited the cemetery to pay their respects to loved ones over the Memorial Day weekend at the green, scared resting place adjacent to the Bethel Avenue roundabout.

On Sunday, May 27, Hansville had its own Memorial Day observance at the Hansville Cemetery. Locke Morgan, a pastor at the Hansville Community Church, addressed the crowd by reading from Laurence Binyon’s poem, “For the Fallen.”

“They went with songs to the battle, they were young, straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted; They fell with their faces to the foe,” Morgan read.

After Morgan led the group of attendees in a short prayer, Gary Erickson, Jo Nelson and Peter Dow read the names of the veterans interred at the cemetery.
