Five members of Branch 38 assisted at the placing of the wreaths at the Washington Veterans Cemetery in Medical Lake. The ceremonies were delayed two days due to some very cold weather. Congresswoman Cathy McMorris-Rogers spoke at the ceremonies. Shipmate Grisham represented the Gold Star Family for the U.S. Navy wreath. The Gold Star Family was unable to attend. The other branch shipmates that helped were James Robertson, Dennis McCully (and his wife), Roscoe Moore and Peg Burke.
