Memorial Day tradition continues with ceremony at Cathedral of the Pines
About 100 people attended the Friday afternoon observance.
“We are celebrating our 69th year as a national memorial dedicated to the memory and honor of all Americans who serve the nation,” Donald Upton, chairman of the Cathedral of the Pines trustees, said to the crowd in opening the observance.
Unfortunately, no official records of war dead were kept before that, he said.
“For every individual lost on the field of battle, so too, is lost an untold story. The cumulative narrative of those untold stories is one of unfulfilled potential,” he said.
