All gave some, some gave all
This event is a real eye-opener I highly recommend it to everyone. What was going to be a 15 min. shoot ended up being three hours at Evergreen Washelli Cemetery on Memorial Day. The white gravestones are American servicemen and women from the Civil War to the Vietnam War. This section of the cemetery is full.
The current national cemetery the veterans use is Tahoma National Cemetery in Kent, Washington. What a beautiful place that is. Both these places hold an outstanding ceremony on Memorial Day.
Just look at the photos on these pages. You can tell that every visitor has a story. If you take the time to talk with them, you will find some pretty interesting stories.
Time: Monday May 27th
Evergreen–Washelli Cemetery - 11111 Aurora Ave. N., Seattle, WA
Tahoma National Cemetery Southeast 240th St. Kent, WA 98042

* If you approach someone a simple introduction would be: “Everyone has a story about someone who is buried here, do you mind if I hear yours?” Most are relieved to tell it. It's great therapy.
